2008 was a pivotal year for us all. It was the year that I was asked by my staff at Saint Paul’s Newman Center at CSUF to make a statement of guidance on Proposition 8, passage of which would deny same gendered couples the Civil Right to marriage in California. My public statement of conscience against Prop 8 ended my active ministry as a Catholic priest.
These last eight years have been a tumultuous time for us all, but happily, we have all moved in a positive direction. In my own life, I was involved in advancing Civil Rights for LGBT people. I am grateful to have been part of the process of fighting against and overturning Proposition 8. I am also grateful to Robin McGhee, the founder of GetEqual, for her courage and leadership in helping us to eliminate the discriminatory Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT) policy that forced gay and lesbian military service members to live in secrecy and fear.
Those battles fought successfully, I now am focusing my attention on pursuing a lifetime passion, Real Estate.
