Since I nearly forgot my blog existed until I decided I needed to write again, I am welcoming myself back with a post featuring one of my favorite videos. It makes me cry in a good way.
This preacher is the kind of preacher I can be proud of. He understands that the arguments that have been thrown around against gay marriage (and the only ones I’ve heard are biblical) are outdated, outlandish, and just plain wrong. While Christians and atheists do not see eye to eye on everything (obviously), they need to come together when they share a common interest in human rights. On election day I learned that I have a large number of Christian friends who feel the same way I do in that they wish for marriage rights to be extended to all couples. While we should not be voting for basic human rights in the first place, I was proud of each of the four states that either legalized gay marriage or prevented their state from defining marriage as being between a man and a woman.
The image on the left tells me we’re making progress. The one on the right tells me we still have a long way to go.
