Arizona Propsition 107 (November, 2006) - Rejected by the voters, 51.2% to 48.2%, making Arizona the first US State to vote down a state marriage amendment!
November 2006 - 34 faith leaders, representing six denominations from throughout AZ, stand together to say Proposition 107 will needlessly hurt families of all kinds:
|Bishop Carcaño was one of several speakers to publicly oppose Proposition 107 during a press conference at the UM Center in Phoenix.
Jimmy Creech speaks to No Longer Silent Clergy at a meeting. The former United Methodist Pastor, defrocked for performing a same-sex union, was in Arizona to preach at the 2nd annual NLS-sponsored Pride Parade worship service.
||"The war for GLBT rights is over just as in WW2 when the troops landed at Normandy we knew the war would be won.
There of course were, and will be, many battles and casualties, but ultimately this war is won. We are talking
about it in the open now."
||Bishop John Shelby Spong|
(to the East Ohio Reconciling Ministries Network and MFSA, Spring 2000)
||"Is organized religion too inextricably bound to the status quo to save our
nation and the world? Maybe I must turn my faith to the inner spiritual
Church, the church within the Church, as the true ecclesia and the hope of the
world. But again I am thankful to God that some noble souls from the ranks of
organized religion have broken loose from the paralyzing chains of conformity
and joined us as active partners in the struggle for freedom. They have left
their secure congregations and walked the streets of Albany, Georgia, with us.
They have gone through the highways of the South on torturous rides for
freedom. Yes, they have gone to jail with us. Some have been kicked out of
their churches and lost the support of their bishops and fellow ministers.
But they have gone with the faith that right defeated is stronger than evil
triumphant. These men have been the leaven in the lump of the race. Their
witness has been the spiritual salt that has preserved the true meaning of the
Gospel in these troubled times. They have carved a tunnel of hope through the
dark mountain of disappointment."
||From Martin Luther King Jr.'s "Letter from Birmingham Jail," dated April 16, 1963|
||"When they came for the communists, I was silent,
because I was not a communist;
When they came for the socialists, I was silent,
because I was not a socialist;
When they came for the trade unionists, I did not protest,
because I was not a trade unionist;
When they came for the Jews, I did not protest,
because I was not a Jew;
When they came for me,
there was no one left to protest on my behalf."
||Martin Niemoeller (1892-1984)|
