Those who know me here, know that I am primarily a “process” guy – I work for campaigns, have run for office myself, and tend to look at issues from a political perspective.
This isn’t true when it comes to equal rights for all. Here, morality must take precedence over expediency.
That is why I, like so many here, am upset with some of the testimony given against the Marriage Equality bill that our Legislature will vote on today and Thursday.
While many good people of faith – rabbis and reverends, clergy and laity – know that God does not discriminate, an unfortunate group of bigots cling to the Bible to justify denying equal rights to fellow human beings.
