New York Pride Parade

I found this article SO awesome.

An excerpt:
``We stand for a progressive religious voice,'' said Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum of New York City's Congregation Beth Simchat Torah. `Those who use religion to advocate an anti-gay agenda, I believe, are blaspheming God's name.''

Colour me impressed. :)

How awesome! :) I'm so glad religious groups are getting in on this. Sexual orientation has nothing to do with personal beliefs. :) It's a nice step forward, and I hope that other major city's religious groups get in on the action.

I don't think I agree with Elizabeth Edward's decision to split with her husband during the San Francisco pride, it must have been a long time coming, so why use someone else's day to suit your purposes? But I do agree with her statement,
"I don't know why someone else's marriage has anything to do with me,'' Elizabeth Edwards said at a news conference before the parade. "I'm completely comfortable with gay marriage.''
If only everyone had that attitude!

If she was just some woman I'd agree but she is the wife of a politician so it's sort of ambiguous what they mean by that. I don't think they meant split as in divorced, it looks more like split as in publically declared a different opinion.
