A priest of the Episcopal Church of Idaho was among the group of persons whose very civil disobedience at the Idaho State Capitol brought attention to the refusal of the Idaho Legislature to consider legislation that would provide employment and housing protections to persons who are homosexual or transgendered. As her bishop and brother in Christ, I support the Rev. Debbie Graham in her commitment to human rights and I commend the Jewish, Christian and other community leaders who also expressed their commitment to an Idaho that is safer for all of its citizens.
