Rev. Gil Caldwell officiates his first same-sex wedding

by Rev. Gil Caldwell – RMN Blog, January 29, 2014  caldwell_weddingAs a Civil Rights Movement “foot soldier,” I have used these words of Martin Luther King to guide my activism, not just for people of African descent, but for all justice struggles; “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

My officiating at my first same-sex marriage took place on the Martin Luther King week-end, the Sunday before the official holiday, January 19, 2014. The couple whom I married, Drew Giddings and Dennis Hall are African American men, and they agreed to my acknowledging the significance of their marriage as a response to the justice leadership of Martin Luther King.
