I jokingly wrote back to Wifester's mom saying that it's surely snowed so much up there that Hell must have finally frozen over. I mean, that's my only explanation for a Church of Christ supporting gay marriage. We were out to lunch with some friends yesterday, one of which is a member of the Church of Christ, here in Nashville. She's not a homophobe, but she will quickly tell you that her church is adamantly against homosexuality. I told them about the email from Wifester's mom, and how I just could not believe that it was a Church of Christ, Wifester interrupting me to say "I'm pretty sure mom got that wrong." when Church-girl said "Oh, she must have read that wrong, I bet it was Christ Church. You know, they're completely different."
With so much debate over whether or not it was the Church of Christ or the Christ Church, what got lost in the conversation was the wonderful fact that now we have large, major congregations banning together in support of our plight. That's such a tremendous step in the journey to equallity.
I've not been able to stop thinking about this article, so I had to look up the newspaper Wifester's mom was telling me about, to read it for myself and to double check to see once and for all, is it Christ Church, or Church of Christ? I just need to know. Trust me, it matters.
Turns out, Wifester's mom is on her game. It was the Church of Christ. Which makes this victory all the sweeter to my pallett. Why is that?
Well, if you pick up a lovely pink rose, and sniff it, and it smells sweet, well, you expected that to happen, but if you pick up a gnarley twisted weed, and it seems dead and dry, but you sniff it anyways, and it smells just like that rose did? That's something to take notice of!
