A motivated supporter of Kentucky Equality Federation and Marriage Equality Kentucky's Marriage Declaration (more) has posted signs around Harlan County in Southern Kentucky to raise awareness of the declaration.
Today however, the 25 year-old supporter contacted Kentucky Equality Federation and reported that his hand made signs (pictured) have been torn down on multiple occasions.
According to the supporter, the signs have been town down by a well known local person.
Is there no room in Harlan County for diversity, tolerance, or equality? Is vandalism, or the destruction of property that belongs to someone else not a crime in the Commonwealth of Kentucky?
To our supporter we leave you with two quotes from very distinguished people who changed our nation:
"The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just." - Abraham Lincoln
"Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation." - Coretta Scott King
To the person removing the signs (who we have also emailed), we leave you with these thoughts:
"The plague of mankind is the fear and rejection of diversity: monotheism, monarchy, monogamy and, in our age, monomedicine. The belief that there is only one right way to live, only one right way to regulate religious, political, sexual, medical affairs is the root cause of the greatest threat to man: members of his own species, bent on ensuring his salvation, security, and sanity." - Thomas Szasz
Remember, a competent and self-confident person is incapable of homophobia. Homophobia is invariably a symptom of emotional insecurity with your own sexuality.
