Funny and moving speech in support of LGBT marriage by New Zealand MP Maurice Williamson

I love this moving and funny speech by New Zealand politician Maurice Williamson in support of LGBT marriage. Humor really does help reach people (and so does heart-felt emotion). I am always so grateful to the people who speak up with compassion and in support of greater open-mindedness and basic rights. This was such a feel-good video to watch. If you need a little boost, check it out.

    I’ve been wanting to share this bit of humor with you in case you missed it. Now’s my chance. Washington State just passed two new laws – legalizing gay marriage and legalizing marijuana.

    The fact that gay marriage and marijuana were legalized on the same day makes perfect biblical sense because Leviticus 20:13 says ,
    “If a man lies with another man they should be stoned.”

    Evidently, we just hadn’t interpreted it correctly before.

    Lee, I hadn’t heard that one before. 🙂 Wow, some of the things in the bible are…scary.
