There is now a movement afoot in the South that is turning that fine old Southern tradition of not saying what you really mean on its cotton-picking head. The Campaign For Southern Equality (CSE) is conducting grassroots initiatives throughout the Bible belt in an effort to change not only popular attitudes but the laws discriminating against the GLBT citizens as well. What's more, this advocacy is beginning to gain attention and followers.
The CSE is sponsoring the WE DO project. Beginning early in the new year, state by state, same gender loving couples throughout the southeastern USA have applied for and been denied marriage licenses. The action culminates this upcoming Thursday, January 17, 2013, when couples will apply for permits to marry at Arlington County Courthouse, Arlington, Virginia. Once refused, they and supporters will walk the 4.5 miles across the Memorial Bridge into Washington, DC, ending at the Jefferson Memorial and taking their vows there, in accordance with District of Columbia laws.
The purpose of the CSE's WE DO project is to call for full equality under federal law and to resist unjust state laws. The goal is to bring and end to discrimination and exclusion from the guarantees provided by the USA Constitution.
