A Prayer for Equality

This week as many of you know, the Supreme Court will be hearing cases concerning Marriage Equality. I for one can’t even imagine how they could rule for anything except Equality, but then again I’m not very politically savvy.

I am glad the issue is getting so much attention however. It has to make people think…why would any group of people be denied what everyone else can take for granted? If Biblical reasons are used for this form of discrimination, then where is the separation of church and state? Plus, if we are going to form a Bible based government, soooo many things will have to be outlawed, like shellfish, bacon, working on Sunday, most modern fabrics, cussing — oh my!

This week I invite you to pray with me that the Supreme Court uphold the Divine Idea that is at the heart of our Constitution, that all are created equal and should have an equal opportunity to the pursuit of Happiness with the person they love.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
