Looking for Liberty in America

Withholding a marriage certificate remains one of the few remaining ways of limiting full citizenship to some among us who are perceived to be alien or 'other.' How do we square this with the frequent biblical admonition to 'treat the alien in our midst as a citizen?' Not to tolerate. Not to grant second class status. But to treat as citizens.

-June 28, 2005, UCC President,
Rev. John H. Thomas in his speech endorsing a marriage resolution just days before the annual meeting
of the General Synod


WILL AMERICA LEARN THAT LIBERTY AND FREEDOM OVERSEAS MEANS NOTHING IF IT'S NOT GIVEN AT HOME?

Hope you guys had a great 4th of July...I'm still waiting to become a full and equal citizen.

Somebody tell me how it feels to fully celebrate being an American because I wouldn't know.
