I find it odd that there was little pre-publicity or after-coverage of the Gay Pride event in Belleville last weekend. The marriage of four gay couples took place and was officiated by a Catholic priest from St. Louis.
Was there a lack of interest or fear of reprisal? Does it imply it did not happen because we don't approve, or that there is nothing unusual and it is a totally acceptable event? It is high time we enter the 21st century with pride.
