News from Different Churches on Civil Rights

  • Here are two interesting articles. Glad to see that the Catholics in the U.S. are not putting up with the political crap the church is trying to thrust on them. I believe the Catholic and Baptist churches also didn't want mixed-race couples to marry... As for the Southern Baptists, well, they appear hopeless on civil rights issues, and always have to be made to understand what "all equal in the eyes of God" really means. Sigh.
  •   IN OTHER NEWS- Finally, the GOP stopped harassing the military about allowing gay members to serve in the armed forces. Yay.

  • Catholics disagree over church role in marriage debate
    Some Catholics who are fighting an attempt to ban marriage equality in Minnesota say they feel out of step with a church they otherwise admire, but polls find they are among a majority of Catholics who support the rights of same-sex couples to marry. Minnesota church officials contend their role in trying to restrict marriage to heterosexual couples via a constitutional amendment should not be seen as anti-gay.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
