If you follow this blog, you know I'm pretty big on Equality, especially gay rights. I think it's a combination of knowing its the right thing to do, and perhaps a little attempt at trying to atone for past homophobic attitudes, while being a "Good Mormon".
Anyway, with all that said, I, like many others found the hate spewed forth from the pulpit at the LDS Conference this past weekend, especially vile and inappropriate.
I'm upset, angry and felt good about my efforts to help spread the word about it.
But... I think the time may have come for a new level of involvement.
On Thursday night this week, Pride in Utah are organizing a rally in Salt Lake City. I'm not sure what form it will take, but I feel the need to attend.
On one hand, it means leaving my family for an entire night, but on the other hand, I think it's time I walked the walk, and put my money where my mouth is.
Right is right.
