There isn't enough coverage of this sort of news

AP has posted the following story about gay marriage in Iowa and faith leaders:
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - More than 160 faith leaders are weighing in on gay marriage, saying they support such unions and disagree with those who cite the Bible in raising objections
The 167 people, who represent a number of faiths, held a Statehouse news conference Tuesday to argue that unions based on love "must be honored." 
All too often, the media opts to portray religious communities and leaders as vehement opponents of gay people.  This simply isn't true in many cases.  I'm glad that these leaders are making themselves heard.

All for now.  Taking tomorrow off from blogging.  See you Thursday!
