Area Minister Speaks Out About Texas Sodomy Ruling

"All I know is, there's going to be a lot of celebrating," said Christopher George. On Thursday, he had his private life legalized. The Supreme Court decision striking down anti-sodomy laws in the lone star state has furthered the case of equality.

"We're not asking for special rights, we're asking for those rights that other people of this society enjoy, that is, to be consenting adults behind closed doors," said George.

And while legally Christopher’s lifestyle has been sanctioned, for opponents, the shadow of morality still remains cultural baggage that Christopher George, Associate Pastor at the Metropolitan Community Church of Lubbock, has had to cope with. "As a gay Christian I have struggled with my spirituality, my sexuality, to realize that god created me as me and god loves me as a gay man," he said.

A firm conviction in the judgment of God, upheld today by the highest court in the land. "Gays and lesbians are human beings, and they need to be treated equally as every other part of society," he said.
