Ok, so i know its super short notice, but if you are reading this and live in NYC please come out to stand vigil with us, Wednesday April 22.
Here’s the deal:
The UN is trying to pass this “declaration on sexual orientation and gender identity ” (see below), basically saying that no one should be discriminated against because of anything, including their sexuality. predictably, the Catholic Church has decided that despite their belief that they are for runners of social justice, that they need to block this declaration, because it seems to be in opposition to their stance that gays are not entitled to get married or have equal rights or equal love from God do to their sinful nature.
WHAT WE’RE DOING……..
In conjunction with our friends at Soulforce (remember “7 straight nights”?), we will be standing vigil outside the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See. We hope to be scene and spark interest so that we may speak out against this wretched idea of blocking a resolution of equal rights for ALL humans.
9-9:30am; gathering at Marble Collegiate Church (1 West 29th Street) and walk to vigil site.
10am- 4pm; Vigil , Prayer, Conversations and Public Education
Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See, 26 E. 39th st
hope to see you there. remember this is a NON VIOLENT campaign. you are welcome to come and go as you need to. any amount of time on the line is wonderful. and if your interested in some civil disobedience, i think there will be an opportunity for that.
Come out and join us please. Jay and i will be there, not sure who else. We would love to have you with us. This is an opportunity to live out the ideas and actions we preach and believe in. Please STAND with us.
And if your the praying type, we wouldn’t mind if you tossed a few our way Wednesday and Thursday.
here is the UN STATEMENT:
Today, Jay flips the script with a question for you instead… does how somebody disagrees with you and who that person is make an impact on what they have to say? Or is it only the message that matters?
