Respect rights of those who differ

I am in full support of Colin Collette and feel so sad that the Archdiocese of Chicago fired him for simply being who he is. I was outraged at first and even partook in the Herald online discussions. I have thought and prayed and slept on all this.

Marriage equality is now the law in Illinois, and for that I feel glad. By law, people can no longer be treated as second-class citizens. What a victory for Illinois.

In that victory however, we as advocates for equality must remember to respect and honor the rights of those who differ, even when we think their actions are reprehensible. As much as I disagree with the Catholic Church's reaction, the church is within it's rights to fire Mr. Collette. From there we can discuss our own opinions and hope for understanding and peaceful coexistence. Best wishes to Mr. Collette and his fiance. God bless.
