DC Christians Set a Good example

The Post has a nice little piece this morning. You might remember the controversy over the PBS kids' show, "Postcards from Buster," where Buster goes to Vermont to learn about maple syrup, and on his trip visits a home with two moms. The Bush Adminstration demanded that PBS refund the money spent on producing that segment, and most stations on the network decided not to show it.

But it was shown in a city in California, where somebody Tivoed it and burned it to a DVD and sent it to somebody out here. So the Church of the Pilgrims Presbyterian in DC was able to show it to a couple hundred families.
At a time when religion is often cited against homosexuality, the Rev. Jeff Krehbiel, the pastor, said congregations like his must embrace families of all types "not despite our Christian convictions but because of our Christian convictions." What Has Floppy Ears And a Subversive Tale?

It's kind of a fun little story about some good-hearted people. Follow the links, read the story, have a chuckle.
