On the issue of gay rights, I continue to strongly support civil marriage. It is wrong or our civil laws to deny any American the basic right to be part of a family, to have loved ones with whom to build a future and share life's joys and tears, and to be free from the stain of bigotry and discrimination.~ Ted Kennedy ~
I've finally figured out some potential responses to someone who is anti-gay marriage....
Do you want to marry one of the members of the couple who are wanting to get married?
...what business is it of yours?
Civil rights are civil rights. They belong to all.
Churches, however, have the right to make decisions based upon their doctrine, tenets, statement of faith--whatever. And isn't it interesting that churches are taking the lead in this matter.
