Faith leaders deliver more than 238,000 petition signatures to Village Voice Media

On Thursday, March 29, a group of ministers, rabbis, and other religious leaders organized by Groundswell, the social action initiative of Auburn Seminary, joined advocates, activists, and New York City Councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito to present a petition from more than 238,000 people demanding that Village Voice Media cease running advertisements in the Adult section of its Web site Backpage.com that others have used to sell and buy minors for sex.

Groundswell is the sponsor of the petition on Change.org and organizer of the rally that took place outside the office of Village Voice Media's flagship publication The Village Voice in New York City.

This is pretty interesting: http://www.groundswell-movement.org/
Apparently, Groundswell promotes a LGBT agenda.
It is also noteworthy that in the very first picture on the website homepage, the blond in the clerical collar is wearing the same blue coat as in the VV protest photo. Must be a fairly young organization. Maybe Lynch has a new employer.
When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often, that individual is crazy.

I recognize that some critics have a kinship with Tony Ortega because of his excellent reporting on Scientology, but this protest had nothing to do with Scientology, nor was it intended as a personal attack on Tony.

Tony is the editor of the Village Voice, whose Board of Directors, have no issue with classified ads of a sexual nature (massage, escorts, etc.) being published in the back of the newspaper, because this is a huge source of revenue for the newspaper. Publications that have permitted ads like this have always evoked anger & protest from feminists & community organizations opposed to, what they consider, the exploitation of women.

The woman in the photo is the Rev. Dr. Katharine Henderson, President of Auburn Seminary, and one of the conveners of a clergy coalition demanding that Village Voice Media close the Adult section of Backpage.com. The protest included men & women of all ages. One of the protesters (middle) was John Buffalo Mailer, son of Norman Mailer, co-founder of The Village Voice.

Groundswell is a reputable organization that has zero to do with Scientology. Jim Lynch has nothing to do with Groundswell. He inserted himself into the protest as a well-paid stooge for the cult, solely because they have a beef with Tony O. & his reporting on Scientology.

This is not new. Scientology has often inserted itself in protests & community issues for solely PR reasons and to gain community sympathy to their being "attacked" by "religious bigots". Because the protest was coordinated by a religious coalition, the cult jumped right in, but had no interest in the purpose of the protest itself; only that it targeted Village Voice Media (that employs Tony O.)
