In a press release sent out this week The Humanists of the Palouse, a chapter of the American Humanist Association, publicly condemned the comments of area pastor, Doug Wilson, regarding slavery and marriage equality.
Wilson, as pastor of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho, is a prominent and outspoken member of the community and a national figure. He recently stated on his blog that supporting same-sex marriage is a “far more serious” problem than supporting slavery.
“Wilson is already well-known for his strong opposition to LGBTQ rights and his white-washing of American slavery, but his recent comments callously unite the two in one deplorable statement. We are appalled at the assertion that systematic ownership of human beings would be considered more moral than legalizing marriage between two consenting adults,” the Humanists’ release read.
Members of the Humanists of the Palouse, along with many residents of Moscow, Idaho, said they celebrate the United States Supreme Court’s ruling regarding marriage equality and will continue to fight for the rights of the LGBTQ community and of all individuals.
