Amazing and Beautiful! Gay Marriage (CA) and Gay Fathers (NC)! Oh, Happy Day!
It is Monday, June 16th, and today, at 5:01 P.M. in CA, gay marriage is legal. Amazing! I'll be flying to CA today, but not with my partner Dean. Instead, I'll be going to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA), held in San Jose, CA this coming week, in which we will be debating ordination of LGBTQ folks. Currently, the ordination standards make it clear that one must be living "in fidelity in marriage (one man, one woman), and chastity in singleness," though no one defines what is chastity in marriage (Check it out!).

On top of that, enjoy the stories of gay fatherhood in the Asheville Citizen Times. Unlike my Raleigh News and Observer, where there were no stories of gay fatherhood, Asheville Citizen Times spotlighted being a gay father.
Beautiful! We've got a story to tell!
