When Did He Grow Up?
Prop 8 Aftermath: May I direct you to karrenlouise for an eloquent, thought-provoking post on Prop 8? She is a miracle worker with boldly expressing her opinion while still maintaining a great love and empathy for those who feel differently. I echo her sentiments, though not nearly as poetically.
And as I reflect upon the result of Proposition 8 (and my reaction to it), I realize I have expressed my joy at its passage, but have not adequately expressed my deep sorrow and pain for those who suffer from its passage. While I still firmly stand by my support for maintaining traditional marriage, my heart mourns with those that mourn. Marriages have been dissolved and a great hope has been extinguished for many. Same beliefs or not, pain is something we share as a people and one thing that makes us human. I pray those affected will receive comfort and feel the Lord's love.
