Reverend Charlotte was the first signer on our petition for ballot qualification. She was incredible, telling the TV audience that she wants the ability to marry gay couples in her church, but doesn't want to force her brothers and sisters in other parishes to conduct marriages that are against their beliefs.
It was a big day for her on a personal level as well. She was married to her same-sex partner in New York a couple of years ago, and as of yesterday the Feds recognized that marriage. We still have not done so in AZ, but she was thrilled to help us get started repairing that as well.
Some of you may know that I blog in part because I am incredibly introverted and have trouble with public interactions with strangers. Yesterday I did 2 live TV feeds, one live in-studio TV appearance, and 4 taped TV interviews plus any number of radio and print interviews. Today I think I am suffering from some form of PTSD. But that is why we hurried to get our petition filed -- we wanted to be part of the story when the Supreme Court ruled, and we were.
