I'm proud of you... Kentucky?!

A Kentucky church won't sign marriage licenses for straight couples until they can for same-sex ones as well. "The Douglass Boulevard Christian Church’s congregation approved the action unanimously Sunday..."

"Members voted in 2008 to become an Open and Affirming Community of Faith, the designation for LGBT-friendly churches within the Disciples of Christ denomination."

I had no idea that existed! So nice to hear!

The comments are so lovely, too.

"I am one of the ministers at Douglass Blvd. Christian Church. I am deeply touched by the outpouring of support from you all here and else where. I wish I could speak to everyone personally and thank you. I hope and pray that this might be a moment that the Gospel of Christ be an instrument of peace rather than an instrument of hurt. From the bottom of my heart thank you."

See, that is religion I could get behind. "an instrument of peace rather than an instrument of hurt".

Here's their website, you can use their contact us form to send them a happy little note if you want. If you follow my link and say mean things to them, you'll get all sorts of angry faces from me!
