Bullying is NOT a Christian Value

"But the child’s sob in the silence curses deeper than the strong man in his wrath." ~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Sadly, we have heard too much about bullying in the past few weeks as gay teenagers have taken their own lives in the face of taunts, invasion of privacy and harassment. The teenage years can be rough enough but to have people specifically targeting gay youth is unjust. As Christians we must stand up and say no to bullying, even when other Christians (like focus on the family) say its OK. Jesus' commandment that we love one another does not allow us to belittle others or question their dignity in the name of God.
