    which is to be accepting.
    Peter Brown, pastor of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Charlotte echoes the sentiments ingrained in me from my 15 years of Catholic upbringing (before I turned atheist in the mid 1970's)  which is to "do unto others" and "turn the other cheek".  If you really listen to the lessons of Jesus that's really what it's all about.  Ethics, morality, compassion.  Admittedly, there is a lot of malarkey in Catholicism, but a lot of good too.
    It also helps that this happened in Charlotte, a fairly progressive populace, especially as far as the deep South goes. (I grew up in Massachusetts).

    The root of of Christianity is in fact to be tolerant and accepting.  Amazing how few actually "get" that.
