My Dear Friends:
I am writing to express my gratitude and admiration for your deep commitment to justice for all Ugandans. Your courageous stand on behalf of gay and lesbian citizens embodies the heart of our Unitarian Universalist faith, and your example is a source of pride and inspiration for Unitarian Universalists in the United States and throughout the world.
I know that by standing up to institutionalized discrimination, you are accepting great personal risks. We Unitarian Universalists frequently affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person, but seldom are we called to stake our own well-being and safety on this core principle. Your willingness to do so is a moving example for all of us. Please know that there are many Unitarian Universalists around the world who are with you in spirit as you gather in Kampala.
Thank you for answering this vital, sacred calling. I wish you great success in your advocacy efforts, and I look forward to sharing your work with Unitarian Universalists in the United States.
Yours in faith,
Rev. Peter Morales
Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender Equality
