Standing Up For Marriage Equality in Rhode Island


This past Sunday I experienced the most wonderful thing.

Our Unitarian Universalist president Peter Morales and United Church of Christ general minister Geoffrey Black and some three hundred and fifty people came together to call on the Senate of the State of Rhode Island to finish the job begun by the House of Representatives and to respond to the heart call of the governor and the citizens, and to vote marriage equality into our laws.

The preparation was hard. Getting two denominational presidents together at the same time and at the same place turns out to be a major production. But, both Dr Black and Dr Morales are deeply committed to this aspect of advancing human rights and justice in our community, and they both adjusted their calendars and, well, and it happened!
