A grandfather and worker's comp lawyer who lives around the corner from me, a man named Dennis Finch, is running for the South Dakota state senate. His opponent is the incumbent who has done nothing but talk about the "Three Gs" (God--for--guns--for--gays--against).
Mr Finch, a Democrat, has said that he is for "fairness for all". He, along with a Republican state senate candidate, has been endorsed by Equality of SD. So this is what he gets:
Also, as noted in today's Rapid City Journal, a LGBT hate group has targeted his campaign by sending out pink postcards with a photo of two men kissing. The incumbent has said that he had nothing to do with this, but refuses to disavow the group's actions. Shameful.
Please pray for those who are so consumed by hate, that the Holy Spirit will soften their hearts and that love will cast out their all consuming fear.
Update: My church pal RR has a photo of the actual headline in the newspaper today.
