LGBT Blogger Pam Spaulding Bravely Stands Up and Speaks Out Against North Carolina’s Bigoted Anti Same Sex Union Admendment

LGBT blogger Pam Spaulding from Pam’s House Blend over at Fire Dog Lake took to the steps of “Duke and Durham: Love=Love Candlelight Vigil.” last night to let her feelings be know about the North Carolina’s legislature attepting to pass a constitutional amendment that would ask voters to ban marriage, civil unions, domestic partnerships and other same sex relationship recognition on the May 2012 ballot.

Pam, a North Carolina native joined over 300 others at the vigil which was a somber affair.  But Spaulding would not let her feelings be reigned in and spoke passionately, truthfully and from the heart.

Pam Spaulding start speaking about 1:00 mark
Whats happening in North Carolina and across America to the LGBT Community thanks to the Republican party is a heinous injustice.  And in my opinion “vigils” are to mourn.  I applaud Pam for standing up and speaking out.  We must stop lamenting and start lambasting.  The time for vigils is over.  We must take to the streets and stand tall and speak out.  What they, the Republicans and the homophobic bigots out there are doing to us is just plain wrong. 

The time for lighting candles and waxing poetic is over.  It’s time to take to the streets and FIGHT.
