“A middle school student who is bullied daily doesn’t care about religious differences. He needs help,” said Warren Throckmorton, a psychology professor at Grove City College in Pennsylvania.
Throckmorton is the co-creator of the Golden Rule Pledge – an initiative that encourages respect and concern toward GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) persons without compromising beliefs – which has produced a new youth curriculum that tackles gay bashing and bullying.
Today, the Golden Rule Pledge released a series of resources for church youth groups and religious education teachers to help leaders equip themselves and students to prevent bullying.
The resources are available here for free download.
