from signonsandiego:

"Sanders, whose daughter is lesbian, drew national attention when he switched from opposition to support of same-sex marriage during an emotional news conference in 2007. A Republican and former San Diego police chief, Sanders will receive the GLMA Achievement Award."

And the conference headliner is none other than the Rev. V. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay bishop of the Episcopal Church.

It is good to know that the Mayor understands that he has a responsiblity for all the people that can vote him into and out of office. Taxpayers!

What wonderful words these are:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator

with certain unalienable Rights,

that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Let's all stand up be merry and gay while applaud our 'Happiness'!

about praying in secret vs. in public?
Not applicable much? I'd sooner talk about the likes of televangelists and the "National Day of Prayer" in relation to that verse. You can't bring in "don't let your right hand know what your left hand is doing" either, because the man was apologizing to "the community" whom he had harmed: the LGBT people by acting against our needs, and the straight community by supporting a prejudiced structure that helps separate them from God's plans for peace and growth. It is good and right for him to have spoken publicly about his change of heart, and right for these representatives of the community to celebrate his being forgiven and his further work for the cause: frame you will find much support for in Scripture.

I agree, Warren.

This man is doing the right thing.

It is a controversial subject that digs deeply at the roots of the faith of people who cannot understand that Christ is not bound inside of a book.

Hey if there is no objective standard of Truth in Christianity, then I guess anything goes. That is where TEC is today.

You can now marry your dog in TEC. The liturgy is forthcoming.
