Hate is hate, and when hateful states refuse to acknowledge that God and nature are revealing a new truth, the rest of us must shake things up.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 18, 2012
The Universal Life Church Monastery today announced a plan to lobby major corporate involvement in a campaign for marriage equality. The plan was announced via a blog article on its official website, which suggests imposing economic sanctions against “hate states” that restrict or deny equity based upon race, sexual orientation, or religious beliefs.
In the article, the ULC Monastery calls upon Google to block search functionality in states such as North Carolina, which recently passed a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage and civil unions. It argues that corporations would benefit from this sort of action, citing a case in which Starbucks stock increased after facing a boycott by National Organization for Marriage over its stance on same-sex marriage.
The article goes on to summarize the views of the Universal Life Church in a few short lines, stating:
“There should be no Google searches, no Facebook pages, and no mobile telephone service for “hate states”. Hate is hate, and when hateful states refuse to acknowledge that God and nature are revealing a new truth, the rest of us must shake things up. Homosexuality is ubiquitous and decidedly integral in the social structures of innumerable species that are also creations of God.”
Since its inception, the Universal Life Church Monastery has championed many social causes, taking a leadership role in support of freedom of religion and speech, gay rights, and other minority issues. The Church has also funded such charitable causes as diverse as autism research, support for battered women, homeless shelters for youth, educational grants for minority students, and holds a soup kitchen in conjunction with the Greek Orthodox Church in the Seattle, WA area.
The Universal Life Church Monastery is the world’s largest internet ministry. It invites anyone to visit its website and become ordained online, and has helped over 20 million people become a minister since its founding in 1977.
