Helem membership is open to any person who shares our values based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Helem is also strongly opposed to any kind of segregation, both in the services it offers or in the struggle it leads.I don't think a magazine like this could have been published in Lebanon without the transformation going on now in the Arab world started by President Bush. I wish more Gay activists understood how Bush's Conservative Christian faith also roots his faith in Universal Human rights.
Forget pushing Gay Clergy and same-sex Marriage on conservative Churches. Leave these people alone because you insult a faith in human dignity which fuels the real struggle groups like Helem fight.
Focus instead on Universal Human Rights, where no such rights exist; and support President Bush as he builds Democracy and a Liberal society in the Arab world.
