"Dear fans,

I've read your feedback on my participation with The Salvation Army USA, as an openly gay person whom just happens to also be a celebrity, I took the Salvation Army's request to participate in their fundraiser as one step in the right direction towards equality. If we simply separate ourselves from those that we assume appose us or our beliefs then we will never make strides in the right direction. I applaud the Salvation Army's symbolic handshake towards acceptance and would be foolish to not extend my hand in acceptance."

-- Gay interior designer and HGTV personality David Bromstad, responding on Facebook to backlash from fans critical of his decision to appear at a Salvation Army-sponsored event in Fort Lauderdale next month. The Salvation Army, an anti-gay church masquerading as a charity, has a long and disturbing history of homophobia.
