Equality Ride bus defaced on FIRST stop

Pam Spaulding: Young people bused to Christian schools that don't allow openly gay and lesbian students would only make it to the first school before encountering bigotry.
I was surfing over to my Tar Heel blogger buddy Matt Hill Comer's pad to see how the launch of the 2007 Soulforce Ride was going, and lo and behold -- they didn't make it very far before the haters came out and defaced the bus on the very first stop of the 18-stop tour for the East Route bus, Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa. I'm sure Soulforce will have more details to come on this.

The Equality Ride is taking 50 participants to 32 Christian colleges and universities and hold discussions with students, faculty, and administrators about the damaging effects of homophobia, and dispel the notion that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and TG people are sick and sinful.

Look at the obscenities on the bus. Pictures are from Interstate Q.

And make no mistake, the spray painters think God is on their side...see after the flip.
