Don't Tell Me Who to Love

Apparently, the Christian Music world was shocked this past September when Christian singer Ray Boltz came out as gay. This is very recent news to me, as I don't really follow Christian Music, being the agnostic secular humanist that I am. But I came across this video of his latest single "Don't Tell Me Who to Love," produced by the gay Christian group Soulforce, who travel the country promoting tolerance and acceptance on Christian college campuses, often getting arrested for their troubles.
The video equates the fight for gay marriage with the fight to allow interracial marriages in the late '60's and early '70's. The video quality isn't particularly good, but the song is pleasant enough and the message more important now, than ever.

More of this, anon.
