Says Reverend Jim:
So Plfugerville was not only the first little town (or city) in Texas to offer equal benefits to same sex couples working in their school district, now they become the first Texas municipality where the citizens themselves stood up for equal rights for everyone in town. When two courageous school board members ran for re-election this weekend against an organized opposition, this little town smack dab in the heart of Texas rose to its full stature and demonstrated what it means to offer equal treatment before the law to everyone. A majority voted not let their school board be targeted because it had offered benefits to GLBT couples and domestic partnerships. Not to take anything away from Hutto and it’s hippo, Port Isabel and its lighthouse from the 1800′s, Marfa and its lights, or Luckenbach and its music, but today Pflugerville stands tallest in the Lone Star State.
May we all rise to that example and follow in your leadership.
