Fran and Dr. Monkey are blog friends with these super people who had a big commitment ceremony over the weekend. I mean huge. Over 500 people. And the media! It was at Penn State and State College Mayor, Bill Welch, presided over the deal.
Of course it wouldn't be a big, fun, gay wedding if the Christians weren't around.
It inspired the Pennsylvania Family Values Coalition, a conservative Christian group, to hold a counter rally afterward.
The only opposition came from Orthodox Christian Fellowship, a Penn State student group that lined the HUB entrance, sang softly,
and held plaques depicting Jesus.
A few dozen people celebrated family values and traditional marriage in front of the Old Main steps....“This isn’t a protest,” said Gordon Hampton, a Faith Baptist member videotaping the rally.
“It’s really to stand up for God.”
Despite the true Christian spirit of those well-wishers, the commitment ceremony for the two gay and two lesbian couples concluded with a standing ovation.
Congrats Delia and Kat!
