CONGRATS LGBTQ friends/brothers/sisters

in 1989 I helped run a city initiative in Tacoma, Washington (not a redneck town) requiring equal protection for lgbt folks and was reviled and ridiculed and the initiative went down. In 2008 through our church a Methodist Reconciling Ministry Network Church, led a protest March against Prop 8. In 2012 the peace and justice project I chaired was a proponent of same sex marriage and we won...and now today!!!! As Martin Luther King Jr. had said: "The arc of the universe tends to bend towards justice" and yes, today it has!!! We have come a long way in 23 and a half years......but as Robert Frost said: "miles to go before I sleep"
