"In Jesus’ parable of The Good Samaritan, we are asked this question: 'Who is my neighbor?' While this parable has challenged many types of prejudices based on race, ethnicity, gender, interfaith, and even sexual orientation, I want us to lift up another community that needs to be seen and understood as neighbor: the transgender community. ... This parable speaks particularly about compassion toward those that the most religiously self-righteous deplore and harm."

-- Rev. David Weekley, A Christian Calling For Transgender Day Of Remembrance
