Music: Bright Eyes- From a Balance Beam.
Work in an hour.
A sun waiting behind the clouds.

Do these horrendous men of violence , dividing communities and families with a message of judgement and pharisee like adherence to a broken law, do they have no concept of looking at this like an outsider?!? Marriage is a institution from the state- and given Marriage Equality for people like me - there will be NOTHING forcing the Church to get involved- they need not preside over any such weddings. If removing themselves from an equation of love support and bringing forth of life into the world is the Church's stance fine! Fine don't take part! But why must you bring your religion into a political stage that literally does not effect your organization. I can promise you by the rhetoric used that none of those utterances and fear filled speech come from a place of concern for me- my well being or spiritual potential for heaven in the future. I do not legislate your way of life- and I live in the United States of America- a land of equality for all regardless of pesky little things like religion race sexuality or political preference. Speakers from the Church on these issues may shore up and affirm support from the radical few- but you bring division to your community as well- over a fight that is not yours. The country has a short memory but not so short i think to forget about the institutions who regularly come down against those with no protection or support in our culture. The number of scriptures being quotes that just make my insides burn for remembrance of the biblical arguments used not so long ago to keep African Americans enslaved, abused, not protected under our law.

Your greatest commandment is to love your neighbor. I feel belittled and hated by millions I have never met, and it breaks my heart because I have no doubt every one of them is a worthwhile person. So I curse the men (because let's be honest the Church's bringing this hate and environment of suicide and self harm to the children of our country do not have women running them.) given the honor and power of those pulpits, that would use them to harm and hurt humans, every one worthy of Love.
