Last night was a candlelight vigil, "Still Standing on the Side of Love" in support of marriage equality and the overturning of Proposition 8. I was invited by a Facebook (and real life) friend. Evidently the Bay Area vigil was an action of
an ecumenical group supporting marriage equality. Santa Clara County Council of Churches

Join a prayerful, peaceful candlelight vigil in solidarity with the LGBT community. Families, students, allies, people of faith, of conscience, of compassion - everyone is encouraged to stand on the side of love and the freedom to marry. There is no proposition that can be passed, no law that can be written, and no constitutional amendment that can be added which can ever truly deny the love and commitment between two people. We cannot be silent when the rights of anyone are eliminated. Now is the time to stand on the side of love.
My corner had The Rev. Chip Larrimore, rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, and another member of the clergy, a woman whose name I did not catch.
