LGBTQ+ Rights and Marriage Equality

Love is Love. It should be this simple. For me, it is.

Years ago, I became ordained so I could perform the marriage ceremony for my dear friend, Debbie, and her now-wife, Sherry. It was a beautiful afternoon on a beach in La Jolla during the time in California when Prop 8 was overturned by Judge Walker. They said “I do,” and a couple of years later, adopted a family of three boys.

Now, marriage equality is the law of the land. I will continue to defend this right, along with the rights of people to identify themselves however they want and to have equal protection under the law.

No bathroom bans. No medical coverage discrimination. No military ban. No employment discrimination. No denial of any human or civil right based upon gender identity or orientation.
