For more love in world

October 25, 2013 

Tim Buchanan's claims about the marriage rights bill are baseless and untrue. The hate and bigotry pushed by some so-called Christian values groups go directly against what Christ taught. Jesus judged no man; why do we think we should?

Tim was allowed to marry the person he loves, but he wants to deny that same right to others because he doesn't approve of their lifestyle. We should all have the right to marry the person we love and have the security and benefits that marriage affords. After all, the world needs more love, not less.

I urge people to call their representative and ask them to vote yes for marriage equality.
