A Religious Liberal Blog

This site hopefully can provide some vehicle by which I can comment, complain, and once in a while praise the state of religion in this country and around the world from a liberal protestant perspective.

Greatful for support of domestic partnerships

I’m writing to express appreciation to the Sheridan Press and to Sheridan’s legislative delegation in their support of HB 168, which would have recognized domestic partnerships in Wyoming. This legislation would have extended important legal rights and responsibilities to gay and lesbians and their families. It would have insured that such families were not legal strangers to each other on important matters from medical care decisions to parental rights. While I’m disappointed that it failed to pass the state house, the fact that in Sheridan, it was supported sends a wider signal of welcome to all people and it gives me hope that the Equality state will, sooner rather than later, live up to its motto.
