redozdachs had a five-second statement on KPIX-5’s report on Prop 8 last night, and I was in that clip for about 2 seconds myself. Geoff appeared under a banner that identified him as a newlywed. He also was in the front of the candlelight crowd scene on Channels 4, 7, and 11. Channel 2 ran a report, but didn’t include us.
Fun personal notes.
More interesting, in each of the TV stories, the No on 8 voice came from a church – our church. The countering Yes on 8 reports featured people yelling on street corners. Kinda a nice reversal. Nice to see religious organizations featured doing something inclusive and for justice instead of advocating divisive discrimination.
Here’s a message: religion can be — and should be — a force for life and love.
