Ok, 1 more post on Prop 2 in the Texas elections. I've found over the last couple of years that it can be illuminating, when you're standing up for some idea, to take a look around at the people who are standing alongside you. Christ chose to stand with the poor, the destitute, the helpless, and the downtrodden. Who are you standing with?
For all of you planning on voting in favor of this superfluous ban on already-banned gay marriage, I want you to do just one thing for me. When you step into that voting booth, and you're marking up all your votes, I want you to stop for a moment when you get to prop 2 and reflect for a second on the people you're standing alongside.
