F/friends - This is a news release by the Director of Communications at the
Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches, with follow-up by
the Communications Director at the Dallas Peace Center. It's important to
note that we don't know if the ruling was reflective of the custody
agreement, or the Judge's belief. As activists and spiritual people/people
of faith - please hold the family, the church, and the legal staff involved
in your hearts/the Light/your thoughts/your magic/your prayers. Blessed be.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE . . . pass this along to as many people as possible.
I think the implications of this ruling are far-reaching and dangerous and
should alarm everyone. The precedent being set here affects all people of
faith who belong to other than "mainstream" faiths. Think about the
implications of such a ruling for Quakers, Unitarians, Mennonites,
Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian Scientists, Mormons, and members of other
smaller religious groups.
