Moderator of MCC issues a Call to Prayer regarding the Earthquake in Japan

Today, as Moderator of Metropolitan Community Churches, I call us all to be awake in prayer, even as Lent begins and the world cries out.  Hours ago, a devastating 8.9 earthquake hit Japan, the 5th largest in history. At this time, tsunamis are still reaching Hawaii, and are about to hit the West Coast of the U.S., and will also hit Central and South America. At this time, we have no idea how severe those waves will be.

U.S. Congress Fails to End "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

U.S. Congress Fails to End "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"


Just moments ago, the United States Senate failed to pass a key procedural Defense Authorization bill that contained an amendment to repeal the ban on lesbian and gay soldiers serving openly in the military.  The vote not only ended our hope of lifting the ban during this session of Congress, but made even a discussion impossible.     

I join my voice to that of human rights activists around the globe decrying not only the failure of the United States Senate to end the 17-year ban, but the lack of courage and conviction in disallowing even a conversation on the merits of the measure.
