The Spero Forum website reports today (July 2, 2012) that the National Catholic Reporter (NCR) -- a newspaper that describes itself as being a Catholic publication led by laity -- has released a list of what it describes as "12 Catholic women under 40 who are making a difference in the church."
One of the 12 women selected for "making a difference in the church" is Heather Mizeur, a delegate to Maryland's General Assembly for Montgomery County, near Washington, D.C.
Mizeur's website notes that she lives in Takoma Park, Maryland with her "spouse" Deborah Veres. In a video, Mizeur describes Veres as her "wife."
The NCR bio describes Mizeur as a lesbian and a "leader in the debate over same-sex marriage in Maryland. In March, the bill to legalize same-sex marriage passed."
