Op-ed: The religious people ARE with us

I get asked a lot by progressive friends, who know my long involvement in the fight for marriage equality, “How are we going to beat the church folk?” Here’s the thing: The “church folk” are with us.

"The LGBT community needs to know that there is a familiar place to worship, and that no matter where they are on life's journey, they are welcome at Mt. Zion," said the Rev. Detra Evans, pastor of Cleveland's Mt. Zion Congregational Church UCC and participant in Cleveland Pride. "Our members love to love, and the community needs to be loved."
