Soft yet Steady Resistance - Resource Page

This is a marathon, not a sprint. A way of life, not a one-day protest. We need determination to stand day after day despite the social pressure against us as we continually declare that this is a conflict over behavior, not identity; that behavior is a choice; that same-sex sexuality is a wrong behavior; and that wrong behaviors should always be rejected and discouraged.

For more details, read the essay "Soft yet Steady Resistance".

I am providing these images in the hope they might prove useful to you. The illustration of the donkey with a cardboard tube duct-taped to its head comes from the cover of "The Wrong Sort Of Stories". It illustrates the short story "The Mascot", which is a satire about same-sex marriage. I believe it is an appropriate symbol for this campaign.


A lack of desire to do right does not justify doing wrong.

Gender identity is self-defeating. If he can claim to be she, then "she" means nothing.

Per the dictates of our religion, we believe that same-sex sexuality is morally wrong, and we therefore do not support same-sex marriage. We are, however, legally compelled to provide our services to same-sex weddings, and we will do so; but please understand that our hearts are not in it, and we are acting under protest.
