Thank you, Mr. President
What a difference a day makes! Amazing: the President of the United States has said that he has evolved to support marriage equality. Thanks be to God.
The battle's not over, but it feels good to hear President Obama say it. The first sitting president to do so.
Yes, North Carolina enshrined prejudice; the United Methodists did too. But we're a hell of lot closer to victory in the marriage equality fight. Hell, demographics are on our side, period.
Let's us be proud! But let's not rest on our laurels. We have work to do. And let us not cast aspersions on those with whom we disagree. As hard as it is, let us keep the upper hand, rooted in compassion. We WILL triumph, but let us do so with grace.
