February 16, 2015 – Remembering Tempest Smith – In A Very Different Pastor’s Study

February 20th is Tempest Smith Day, and it will be at least as long as I can have any say in the matter. She died February 20, 2001 at the age of twelve years old. She died by her own hand as a result of religious harassment at her school. She had adopted Wicca as her faith, and that was one of the more major pretexts her classmates used to harass her.

But this goes beyond that. This sort of harassment and bullying is not limited to schoolchildren. Those of us who spend any time keeping up to date on the news should know that. And it needs to stop.
