      Soulforce is an organization which purpose is "to work towards
      freedom for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people from
      religious and political oppression through the practice of
      relentless nonviolent resistance." (see www.soulforce.org). While
      the group was founded by gay affirmative Christians and has been
      actively fighting homophobia propaged by various churches, Soulforce
      is an interfaith movement open to all people regardless of religious

      The Soulforce new website features allow visitors quick access to
      the 700+ pages covering the 33 Soulforce nonviolent direct actions
      to date in the struggle for LGBT equality. The site introduces the
      new Soulforce Community Forums. The forums are the next best thing
      to being at a Soulforce event -- offering faith-driven activists a
      way to engage in online discussions about everything from
      nonviolence, to theology, to book studies, to just-for-fun topics.
      (Soulforce is offering a free book, Jesus and Nonviolence: A Third
      Way by Walter Wink to the first 25 people who register and introduce
      themselves in the forums. Details are available here:
      www.soulforce.org/forums/showthread.php?t=12 )

      The religious right have been actively working within Asia, and in
      many instances propagated homophobia. There is still much to be
      done to counter that. The forum gives the opportunity for like-
      minded people all over the world to network with one another.
