I believe it was 1962 when New Orleans businesses had the worst
season on record at a time that Christmas was a boon year for
businesses in most of the rest of the country.   Blacks in New
Orleans staged a boycott of the stores that Christmas.
Through Rotary, Kiwanis, Chambers of Commerce and other business
networks word of the price New Orleans paid spread like wildfire
without the help of network news or front-pages of newspapers.
At a steady pace community after community in the South anticipated
the demands of would-be boycotters and quietly met them one by one,
even before the 1964 Civil Rights Act would have forced them to.
Many will try to paint lgbt Christians with abusing our influence to
pressure an ungodly agenda on the poorest countries of the world, but
lgbt Christians qua Christians have no such clout of the agencies ENI
sites.     Secular lgbts do, and they have been contributing
liberally for a long time to these relief organizations.   It is a
bit much to think that they should be asked to continue to fund their
own oppression.

     We make his love too narrow
     By false limits of our own
     And we magnify his strictness
     With zeal he will not own.
