    well that sure is interesting.. never thought my state would do something like that, let alone christians. Not that it directly impacts my religious views, but it'll be interesting to see if people will be more accepting here.

    I watch the NC pride parade in Durham and was impressed by how many church groups marched in it. I think the church scene in the triangle is not nearly as homophobic as what you would expect in the south. Then there was the visit from Westboro church protesting the opening of The Laramie Project at Durham School of the Arts. They were pretty much chased out of town by a much larger turn out of counter protesters. They didn't like how outnumbered they were so they protested in front of the local churches for not joining them.

    The article did say that the southern baptists were not part of this council. That is significant. Suburban Charlotte has the mega baptists churches that are about as homophobic as churches get.

    Well, it is the CoC, so not terribly surprising. Still cool, nonetheless! Thanks for sharing
