This letter from Bishop Desmond Tutu makes me very proud to be part of the Anglican Communion.

We have had our fair share of anti-gay voices in the Anglican Church--even the author of Uganda's 'death for homosexuals' bill, David Bahati, is Anglican--yet the example of Tutu, who lived most of his life under apartheid, articulating that God's message of liberation extends to all human beings regardless of whom they love, is immensely heartening.

President Obama, did you read this letter? Do you agree that "those of us who have freedom must speak out for those whose freedom is under attack?" Simply by dropping the Justice Department's appeal of Judge Phillips' DADT ruling, you can make a difference.
