From tonight's hearing on SB 1000 in Oregon's legislature, here is some paraphrasing from the very heartfelt and sincere testimony in favor of SB 1000 from Senator Morse: "Where we begin this journey will determine where we end our journey.....My conviction to step forward stems from a Christian belief that we are called to act and to love.....Love is not passive...it’s inclusive...it’s listening, then understanding...love brings purpose to our lives...How should I reach out and love to those with a sexual orientation than mine? Is there a place for love in our public policy? I believe there is...It’s time to accept, and it’s time act...It’s time to accept all persons, and treat them with respect, and love." Thank you, Senator Morse.
