Pastor Dan Is Cool

He pointed me to this interesting article.  Check out, in particular, UCC clergy's points of view:  67% support marriage equality, an additional 24% support civil unions, and only 9% are opposed to both.

FWIW, I'm fairly certain that these numbers do not accurately reflect the UCC association in which I currently serve.  There are definitely other marriage equality supporters here, but I'm fairly certain there's at least as many opposed.  Then again, I know I've been guilty of underestimating people's willingness to support this kind of stuff in this part of the state before, so .... I'd so love to be wrong here!

Oh, and if you don't know Pastor Dan, you need to go check out his website.

Um, yeah, that was interesting. But what is Pastor Dan doing putting Disciples in the same expectation camp as the Baptists, especially when we clearly came out in a different place than that in the poll? I am offended! And you can tell him I said so!
