I finally got published, well not exactly. I am published in our daily newspaper here in Iowa. It's called the Des Moines Register, and it's not an article just a letter to the editor about gay marriage.

Lucky for you guys we are online as well I think the site is http://www.desmoinesregister.com/ Click on the Opinion and then letters to the editor. It's in today's paper (April 30th.) Assuming you want to read it anyway. If people are really having trouble w/the link I can post it here as well.

I read your letter to the Iowa paper, Heidi. I agree with your sentiments 100%, and I think how welcome this new-found freedom for gay people must be to them. There are gays in my family as there are in all families and we all say Grace and eat at the same table.

Cool, interesting that the gay people in your family are religious. Depends on one's upbringing and the reaction of the person's faith. One of my good friends is gay but he is kind of agnostic/sometimes leans towards atheist. But just like straight people, it takes all kinds Smile
