Josh Ritter Sean Rowe CC josh ritter speaks out for diversity at messiah college

MAY 6, 2013 – Speaking out after a show at the Messiah College that openly discriminates against gays and lesbians, musician Josh Ritter took to his Facebook page and said:

"Messiah College requires all students to sign a 'Community Covenant,' promising to, among other things, 'avoid such sinful practices as…homosexual behavior…This policy, which I see as exclusionary and bigoted, could not run more counter to my personal beliefs. If I had done my homework, and read about Messiah's policies ahead of time, I would never have agreed to play there…I won't play Messiah College again – not until they welcome, in word and deed, all members of their faith regardless of sexuality, and I urge my fellow musicians to do the same." Read Josh Ritter's full Facebook post here.  (photo credit: Sean Rowe/CC)
