This Saturday, all over the country, there will be rallies held in support of gay marriage.
This is not just a rally for the non-religious. It’d be great to see Christians, Mormons, and African-Americans at these rallies showing that they are in support of equal rights for everyone.
Keith Olbermann said it well the other night:
This isn’t about hate. It’s about love. It’s absurd that there are people out there who would deny other people that love and then complain about the breakdown of the family structure.
This isn’t about hate. It’s about ignorance. The people who are against gay marriage need to be educated. They need to know that denying two committed people the right to marry hurts them. They need to see people they know supporting gay rights. Some of them will cling to their Bible but many of them can be swayed.
If you’re looking for rallies near you, you can find them here.
Reader Eliza said this:
I’m planning to attend the rally & march in Seattle and I am tentatively planning my sign to say: “There is NO EARTHLY REASON to deny equal marriage rights… any other reason is UNCONSTITUTIONAL”
If you’re going, let us know and tell us where!
