Through all the tumult and the strife....
Not that all of the tumult and strife has been good. But it has been an interesting few weeks.
So many things have been happening... in Egypt, Libya, Wisconsin (see "There Is Power in Union", a UUA guide to supporting worker justice)... along with threats to funding for Planned Parenthood (read UUA statement on this) as well as NPR and funding for a US Institute of Peace and on and on. Too much for me to process in writing right now. My head is spinning.
And today, President Obama declares DOMA unconstitutional. It has always seemed obvious to me that it was unconstitutional, so this is very welcome. Here's the UUA response to this turn of events.
