There is A LOT going around the last two days about some hateful and bigoted remarks being made in the media. It is incredibly easy to get wrapped up in arguing the logistics of religion and freedom of speech and the actions that follow controversial statements. But in the same span of time, two major breakthroughs have occurred. New Mexico became state 17, (18 if you count DC) to allow marriage equality, and Utah, (yeah..UTAH!) just overturned their marriage equality ban.
Love is winning…we are winning…and we get to watch it AS IT HAPPENS. It’s historic..and we are living in the middle of this amazing period of time when things are snowballing in the direction of love and equality.
Focus on our progress, folks…find hope and solace in our forward movement.
From Texas with hope,
