I have been sick for a while now, and it’s really making a dent IRL and here online. I’m on my third round of antibiotics, and I’m pretty sure this time the sinus infection will really go away. Hopefully.

So, I totally missed posting on National Coming Out Day, and then missed a mention of Seven Straight Nights. But I haven’t forgotten!
I’m a bisexual woman that married a guy, so I ended up in a privileged position legally.* I can actually provide benefits to my partner, and have our marriage legally recognized by the state.

I want to make sure I use my electronic bully pulpit to say how much I support the ability of my LGBT friends to marry, to be free of hate, and to live their lives as they see fit. It is a human rights issue.

So, I’m a little late, but thought I’d link to a nifty website I discovered recently that monitors the religious right and their LBGT hatred: Soulforce.org.

“The primary source of spiritual violence and misinformation against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) individuals comes from religious leaders and institutions who adhere to a rigid theology and misguided teachings used to condemn and shame non-heterosexuals.
It is the mission of Soulforce to work to end spiritual violence perpetuated by these anti-gay religious policies and teachings.”

I’m not a religious person myself, so it’s encouraging to see people of faith fighting back against dogma.


*BTW, you can read a really nice essay here: I’m a happily married bisexual. And another WordPress Blogger has a nice series about gay marriage here.
