This is a debugging block
As we gather with family and friends this Thanksgiving to give thanks GLAAD asks you to remember those LGBT-supportive faith communities who are doing the work of justice in the world. This week the Raleigh News Observer brought us a story this week of Pullen Baptist Church. The church voted unanimously to discontinue performing legal weddings in the church building until all couples are able to have their marriages recognized by the state of North Carolina.
Two stories have emerged that highlight the conflict between the conservative beliefs of the Southern Baptist Convention and the reality that LGBT people exist and should be treated equally.
