Stand Our Ground

"Weeping may linger for the night,"

- Psalm 30:5a

Today we weep at the news that California's Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8, the unjust ballot initiative that stripped the right to marry from thousands of loving couples. We mourn the seeming triumph of prejudice and discrimination and lament the loss of marriage equality for the citizens of California.

"but joy comes with the morning. "

Psalm 30:5b

Yet, we are reminded of the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that "the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." We have been promised by God a new world order in which peace and justice flow, in which love and compassion trump hatred, bigotry and prejudice. And it is in this coming kin-dom that we place our faith, for already we see glimpses of it breaking through. . .

Iowa. . .

and many more to come. . .

Today we weep, but tomorrow we find our joy in action, making real that vision of the kin-dom through inspired commitments, passionate advocacy and unrelenting activism!

The court decision can be found here.

As I read it, it's a very narrow decision on the legality of the California referendum law, not a decision on gay marriage in general.
