Join the Impact: Jacksonville, FL

We made the two hour drive down from Savannah to march with the folks in Jacksonville. It was a really good crowd, at least 250, and probably well over 300 by the end.
I’m glad Jen found out about the march and that we were able to go. It was time to "come out of the closet" and do more than post to our blog about how much our church’s support for Prop 8 in CA, Prop 2 in FL and the others in Arkansas and Arizona bothers us. It was time to say that we support equal rights for all, that just because two people don’t fit into the Ozzie & Harriet mold doesn’t mean it’s not real, and doesn’t mean the majority should legislate against it.
And this will embarrass her, but I have to tell this story. While everyone was standing in front of city hall, they invited people to speak. Jen got up in front of two hundred strangers holding up our This Mormon Supports Gay Rights poster and told everyone how sorry she was about what our church did and how much she loved them. It was so brave and beautiful, I wish you could have seen it.
Love is worth fighting for – mine, yours, anyone’s.
(i have a bunch of photos to upload, but Jen says she has to review all of them before I upload them and my laptop battery is dying. They’ll probably go up tomorrow some time.)
