Moral Authority in Spartanburg, S.C.
P.K. Weiss, President of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg, South Carolina is a vocal advocate for LGBT equality in her community. She has been working on LGBT Pride Day in Spartanburg, scheduled for June 4th. Recently, Upstate Pride SC asked the Mayor and the County Council to offer a proclamation in honor of the festivities, but the group was abruptly dismissed by the chair of the County Council.
Weiss, a heterosexual mother of four and former president of Upstate Pride SC, told the local news: “There was no salutation, no closing, no thank you for the invitation. Just ‘no,’ and I thought that was rude and dismissive.”
“Moral support from people with authority is important. It shows your efforts aren’t in vain,” she added.

Thank you, P.K., for possessing the moral authority that is absent in some of your elected leaders. You are truly standing on the side of love!
