Same-sex marriage event was a celebratory affair | Letter to the Editor

The bells of democracy rang out loud and clear the night of Feb. 14, when the Burton Community Church joined with the Vashon Unitarian Fellowship to celebrate same-sex marriage. The minister of each church stood side by side to perform the ceremonies in front of a sanctuary full of islanders clapping and smiling.
It was a night of real community — shared building, shared podium, shared resolve of justice, freedom and equality.
