Christians are urging youth groups to take a cue from the White House conference on bullying by stepping up efforts against bullying and spreading the love of Jesus Christ.

Golden Rule Pledge founder Warren Throckmorton praised President Barack Obama’s Thursday conference as a reminder that Christian youth should be taking the lead on bullying.

“Christians should be known for being peacemakers and treating others the way they want to be treated,” stated Throckmorton.

His Golden Rule Pledge website provides resources for bullying prevention to churches. Since bully victims had made news, Throckmorton said that churches from all groups began showing interest. Still, more interest needs to shown, he said.

Andrew Marin, president of the Marin Foundation, agrees. His organization attempts to build bridges between evangelicals and the homosexual community.

Marin laments that some youth groups simply focus on entertaining youth rather than taking on difficult issues such as how to deal with bullying and homosexuality. “We need people in church to be bold enough to stand up and to say ‘no’ [to bullying],” he said.
