SORT BY Relevancy
From Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia and Mississippi, gay couples traveled to this quaint Panhandle city on Tuesday, eager to take part in a historic moment: the arrival of same-sex marriage in the Deep South."We came because it felt like home," said Virginia Jeffries, 30, of Foley, Ala. "And because if we waited for Alabama, we'd be waiting forever."
"I have to confess, when I was first approached about coming here, I thought no way," said the Rev. Dr. Jim Merritt, who moved to Pensacola several months ago to become the senior pastor of Holy Cross Metropolitan Community Church. He married his partner of 20 years on Tuesday in one of many same-sex weddings performed at the church.
A Tuesday regular at the diner, Earl Barrett, 72, and his two breakfast companions voted in favor of Florida's gay marriage ban in 2008. Look up the definition of marriage in Webster's Dictionary, they instructed, citing a core text for gay marriage opponents. (The dictionary amended the definition several years ago to include same-sex couples.)
"I'm a Roman Catholic," Barrett said. "For me, I can see how, civilly, they have the right to the benefits of marriage. But religiously, I can't support it."Tampabay.com

EPISODE 56 - SAME SEX MARRIAGE CONTROVERSY - WHAT IS GOD'S STAND?
With the Federal court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), in essense, it has made same-sex marriages legal at the Federal level. But what about at the state level? Many states have followed the Federal court's decision and are recognizing same-sex marriages, but some states, like Utah, are fighting that decision.
In this episode, find out:
Does God have a stand on same-sex marriages?
What do you do if you live in a state that now recognizes same-sex marriages but you are against them?
How do you be Christ-like and still love homosexuals without compromising your beliefs and values?
Same sex marriage is being contested in some states and now what seemed to have been a decision etched in stone has become the center of National debate. Supporters say that its unconstitutional to restrict anyone who wants to get married from sharing nuptials. Opposition says that the institution of marriage is being destroyed. Who's right and where do you stand? Call in this Tuesday to comment on the HOT TOPIC "SHOULD SAME SEX MARRIAGE BE RECOGNIZED IN EVERY STATE?"

Join Cultural Conversations with an intimate interview with KM Davis, Founder of Davis Law & Associates. Davis is a returned special guest to Cultural Conversations and will enlighten and engage on the subject of the Supereme Court ruling making same sex marriage legal in 50 state, the path to marriage equality and her personal journey in the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) community.
KM Davis is founder of Davis Law & Associates. She discovered her passion for helping business owners far before she realized her own entrepreneurial leanings. However, upon realizing her dual interest (and the need to now “practice what she preached”) Davis’s interest in business law matters has only deepened. The ability to understand the needs of business owners and their families allows Davis to consider aspects of client issues that sometimes even they haven’t realized, and creates a relationship beyond attorney/client…for most clients Davis serves a more comprehensive business advisor role.
