"Marriage is about love, not gender"

That was on a sign our Unitarian Universalist fellowship put on display outside our building twice. It has been stolen twice. Here is the article about it in our local paper:

Rev. Jim Bank's slim silver iBook computer holds a folder filled with digital pictures of children's construction-paper artwork, gatherings of gray-haired churchgoers and congregation awards ceremonies.

The folder also holds a picture of Jim Richardson, chairman of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Easton's social action committee, standing next to an 8-foot plastic banner outside the church proclaiming "Marriage is about love, not gender."

Bank, Richardson and other church leaders weren't surprised when the sign and the 4-by-4 railroad ties that secured it to the church lawn were stolen a few days after being put up in early March. They weren't shocked when they saw that its replacement, an identical sign whose 6-by-6 railroad ties were cemented into the ground, had been stolen sometime after 9 p.m. March 24, this time by sawing the poles down to stumps.

They weren't surprised, but they still don't understand.
