I think we should start a thank you campain for the pastor. Not a patition saying thank you, but seporet letters but people. We fight so hard against so many people we forget to show our thanks when people are willing to do things like this.

Is there a way we can contact these wonderful people (especially the pastor in the video) to thank them for their support and let them know we appreciate them doing this? I'm sure they'll get a lot of negative backlash. I'd like to let them know their support gives me hope for the future.
