Good as gold.

All I can say is, finally someone is going to speak up against the misguided and misinformed people who say they speak in the name of good religion ["Ads Against Intolerance," April 11]. Mitchell Gold seems to have put a team together that can speak the language needed. He's one of the few people who would have the good sense and vision to hire someone like Brent Childers to create a media campaign to speak to Middle America and to self-described evangelicals. I worked for Mitchell for a short time and had the opportunity to see a person who has a proven record of understanding the zeitgeist of America. Slipcovers, leather club chairs, or religion--it's all about selling. And few can do it better. He gets people to go places they never thought they could. Now we might really see a break in moving LGBT rights in forward motion again.

Reading the article about Faith in America reminded me of how Mitchell's vision changed the local AIDS organization in Hickory, N.C. When he got involved almost 10 years ago, he saw things differently, viewed the terrible problems and solutions differently. And then with incredible positive energy he gave this community a new way of doing things that we are the recipient of today. We raise more money and serve more clients today because of Mitchell's simple strategy: speak simply, speak consistently, speak the truth, and work damn hard doing it. I look forward to a new day in America where we can all truly have "faith" in America.
