GOP Candidate Scott Rigell Led Anti-Gay Split of Historic Galilee Episcopal Church Parish in Southern Virginia
¨Rigell has little regard whatsoever for the concept of separation of church and state or for the right to religious freedom for all citizens
Rigell has a documented record of being a divisive influenece and he is no doubt hoping that this four year old story stays under the radar. However, if elected to Congress, there is little doubt in my mind that Rigell will take his decidedly anti-gay and stridently Christianist views with him to Congress. Having known Rigell from years ago when I was active in the GOP and from living in the same neighborhood as Rigell before I came out, I know first hand that Rigell has little regard whatsoever for the concept of separation of church and state or for the right to religious freedom for all citizens. To put it bluntly, Rigell needs to be defeated on November 2, 2010.
Republican Candidate for Congress, Scott Rigell, vote NO!
Many locals in Virginia Beach, Virginia are likely to know of Galilee Episcopal Church, a historic parish that is a landmark on Pacific Avenue in the northern portion of the Virginia Beach resort strip. What many voters in the Virginia 2nd Congressional District do not know - especially newcomers to the area - is that Scott Rigell played a leading role in splitting this historic parish asunder back in 2006-2007, the result of which was the founding of fundamentalist Trinity Church by Rigell and others vehemently opposed to LGBT rights and the ordination of gay clergy...
