VIDEO: At rally, Vassar College shows support for gay rights

For some in the the Vassar College community, it was a teachable moment they hope was a spark for further discussions about gay rights and acceptance.

Four members of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., came to the Town of Poughkeepsie on Thursday to protest Vassar College’s support of the lesbian, bisexual, gay and transsexual community. They were met by hundreds of Vassar College students, faculty and other community members in support for gay rights.

But simply opening up the priesthood to married men could also eventually make the priesthood a domain for married heterosexuals only.
