For my next blog entry, I intend to publish an Open Letter to the Minister of Justice for the South Korean government, Minister Kim Hyung-woon, about comments concerning the LGBT community he made at his confirmation hearings.
If you agree with the sentiments expressed in this open letter, I invite you, no matter where you are in the world, to show this in the ‘Comments’ section by indicating your agreement and including an electronic signature.
This is completely optional. If you are uncomfortable doing so, or if doing so would place you in some kind of jeopardy, I understand 100% – please don’t feel like you are compelled to do so. If you would like to do so, though, I strongly encourage you to add your voice.
And if you don’t agree, I’ll include your comments, too, if you are so moved. I’m not interested in stifling freedom of thought or expression in any way.
Watch this space!
