A contrasting world

During my first few weeks at The Columbus Dispatch, I've covered a few events that contrast each other quite prominently. More particularly, Ohio 7:14, A Solemn Assembly of Prayer at The Ohio Statehouse along with Columbus Gay Pride Parade.

As the clock ticks and our country comes closer to making a decision on Obergefell v. Hodges there has been a lot of activity on both sides.
