    is walking out and going to church somewhere else.

    And there have been churches kicked out of the SBC because they chose to allow uncloseted gay men and women to have full membership in their churches.

    Several denominations have official ways of designating a congregation as GLBT-friendly. There are also some denominational gay-straight alliance groups.

    And not all of the 'taking it to the streets' gets seen outside the religious community. When the Georgia Baptist Convention went after Mercer University for having an unofficial gay-straight alliance group, the Macon newspaper didn't mention (or at least not loudly) something the GBC newspaper stressed: a number of the faculty members offering guidance to the alliance group were Christianity department professors.

    Hoping and praying that the empty chairs and empty tables in Iran when all is said and done are as few as possible.
