Today's letter - Pentecost is the celebration of one great church, and any real church welcomes all people

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger -

Yesterday was Pentecost, the fiftieth and last day of Easter in our church. It celebrates the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles (one or more of whom was statistically likely to be gay.) “The people were amazed because each Apostle spoke in the native language of each of them.” Thus formed the “one church” doctrine summed up in Galatians 3:1 "...there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus."

Those who say that gay people are less worthy of marriage than straight people because of something in their Bible are committing the holy sin of dividing God’s family, as well as the most heinous of secular sins, using their own faith to deny freedom to others.

When these people come to you, Governor, asking you to support their agenda of bigotry and hatred, you are not obliged to treat them with the dignity or respect of a meeting, because they have deliberately and relentlessly denied those things to their neighbors.

Governor, I wish you would apologize for vetoing AB 43, the Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Protection Act that would have legalized gay marriage through the legislature. I wish you would speak out against those Opponents of Equality and their agenda of apartheid. I wish you would make the GOP get rid of Michael Steele so Republicans can be electable again.

Sincerely,
