Chief Judge Richard Taylor handed down a monumental decision this week, appointing Virginia Tracy Thorne-Begland the first gay district court judge
in the state's history!
decision flies in the face of weeks of Republican opposition
lawmakers like Robert Marshall condemning Thorne-Begland as an
"aggressive activist" and arguing his sexuality made him incapable of
being an objective judge.
It is a courageous decision. It is a historic one. But it is not enough.
Already, forces within the Assembly are moving
to oppose Judge Taylor's decision. If we don't speak out now, history will only repeat itself--and Tracy won't have a chance to change it!
Virginia know our support for Judge Taylor's decision, and spread the
news of Tracy Thorne-Begland's appointment to everyone you know. Take up
the call: Thank Judge Taylor for his decision NOW!
