Political power, religion and equal rights

As luck would have it Sullivan has posted and item that seems to really drive home what happens when religion is used to create political power imbalances. The results are heartbreaking. The sad thing is that this is happening every day all around us. The vast power of human cruelty put forth in the name of god by men is overwhelming.

It is not all bad however. Truth does win out. Congratulations to Iowa who's supreme court has approved gay marriage welcome to the club! I have to give major props to lambda legal who helped fund and cary on the fight for equality in Iowa. They are fighting court battles like this all over the US. You can donate to them here.
