Mrs. Servino is an amazing woman. She's had her son's back from the second he came out to her - and long before that.
When she heard that the leaders of her Catholic Church had spent $2 million on anti-gay marriage campaigns in this election, she wrote a letter to the top Catholic bishop in the U.S., Cardinal Timothy Dolan, sticking up for people like her son. It's a message Cardinal Dolan desperately needs to hear.
If you agree with what she's saying - whether or not you're Catholic - add your name to the letter and pass it along. The letter will be delivered to Cardinal Dolan in the next week, so act quickly!
In the next election, Church leaders could decide to pour even more money into anti-gay campaigns if we don't speak out now.
We each have to speak up and make a clear case for equality, whether or not we're Catholic.
I was outraged to learn that the leadership of the Catholic Church just spent $2 million on anti-gay marriage campaigns. Think of all the positive things that $2 million could have accomplished. Think of the hungry fed, the sick comforted, the homeless sheltered. Instead, you chose to use parishioners' donations to divide and discriminate.
Catholicism teaches us to love one another - not to attack our sons and daughters for simply wanting to make lifelong commitments and start families. You won't have to ever marry a same-sex couple, but it makes no sense to deny them the right to be married under the law. And your parishioners aren't going to stand for it much longer.
I think it's time we all got on the right side of history. I hope you do, too.
