This is utterly amazing, coming from a place that is littered with Xians and conservatives in Staunton and Shenandoah Valley.
The blistering editorial by Staunton's local papers, Staunton News-Leader, regarding the homophobia attack on United Church of Christ in Middlebrook, Virginia was a tone that I did not expect from Staunton News-Leader. The United Church of Christ voted to endorse the same-sex marriage last July 4, 2005 -- setting off the hateful people to attack the church with graffiti and arson.
Cheers to Staunton News-Leader for doing the right thing. Hopefully, it sends a message to the people that hate is not a fixture we should live with.
For further information on the fire on the church, you can read few articles by Staunton News-Leader.
