Last Wednesday, Indianapolis was planning a peaceful rally at the Statehouse steps to support marriage equality. It was in the evening, well past the closing of arguments in the Supreme Court in Washington. So why bother? We needed to show Indiana that people in this state are far more forward-thinking than our legislators, who seem determined to take us back to the 19th century in a number of areas. It is time for the sheep to take the lead.
I made a new sign to be absolutely clear whose rights I was there for. I want fellow Christians and all people who are gay to see what real Christian love looks like. As I told a reporter there, Christians who oppose marriage equality are misusing the Bible. The message is grace.
