Atticus Circle’s mission is to educate and mobilize straight allies to advance equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender partners, parents and their children. 

It is time for us to stand up and stand with our gay and lesbian friends who are being systematically denied the most basic rights and recognition – the very things we, in the heterosexual world, take for granted day after day.

It is time for all children, regardless of their parents’ sexual orientation, to share the same rights and protections.

And it is time for our country to acknowledge that the right to love a partner, be a parent and build a family is a fundamental, equal right for each and every one of us.

Today we need your help to win this “civil rights battle rooted in love.” We need you to add your voice to the growing number of our friends who say, “This just isn’t right.” We invite you to come into the Atticus Circle and stand with others who say, “I’m ready. What can I do?”

    I’d like to write about your meeting with Hagee on my blog – but no matter where I’ve looked online (including the Soulforce and Atticus websites and the My SanAntonio piece), I can’t seem to find anything the pastor actually said – or anything specific that your group said to Hagee, for that matter. Is there a reason for this? I realize that during this first meeting you didn’t want to have the “tough conversations” that were referred to in MSA – but if you were reluctant to do that, what was said? What did you talk about? Thanks. (I’m placing this in the comments section because I don’t see an email address or phone number.)
