Even a flatworm turns away from pain.

Score one for the good guys.

We previously covered the now familiar tale of the Knapps at the Hitching Post in Idaho. For the short version of the recap, Donald and Evelyn Knapp, both ordained ministers, were informed that they were going to have to perform same sex weddings at their chapel in order to remain in compliance with a city non-discrimination ordinance. The ensuing uproar which traveled from coast to coast like a shotgun blast apparently attracted the attention of the city fathers who have since thought better of the matter.

The people who pushed this issue on the Knapps wouldn't have done so if they didn't think the culture allowed them to get away with it.  We can't sit back on our laurels with this; we must remain vigilant.
