Kentucky, the sky is just different here.
It’s gotten so green here since Spring started in earnest. Sometimes, when it isn’t so overcast as today, the sunlight through the leaves is almost too green to bear.
Members of Douglass Boulevard Christian Church, located in Louisville, KY, unanimously voted to stop signing marriage licenses for heterosexual couples until same-sex couples are afforded equal marriage rights. The decision comes at the same time that a CNN poll shows that a majority of Americans now support legalizing same-sex marriages, the fourth poll to show similar results in the past eight months.
In 2008, Douglass Boulevard Christian Church (DBCC) decided to designate itself an Open and Affirming Community of Faith, signifying its “commitment to full acceptance of all people, regardless of race, gender, age, or sexual orientation,” and this decision keeps it in line with those values, church leaders said.
AWESOME. Kentucky and its surrounding states get a bad rap, but I think they are the first state to have a church openly do something as bold as this. Way to go!
For those who were wondering, because obviously everyone is intensely interested in my personal life: Joe and I are not getting married in a Catholic church because of our ideological disagreements about homosexuality and abortion.
