The story was picked up by CNN, but they post a shorter version of the story. Also, they got rid of any suspense and imply declared in the title that a Pastor came out as a Roller Derby girl. Last I checked the short version of the story only had a few hundred Facebook shares, and not the 10,000+ shares the original story has. The CNN version cutting out the "moment of acceptance" which is what I think made the original story so great.
In addition to Facebook it has been shared by Feministe as the Holy Roller (a name Liv Fearless considered but rejected). It also made it to Fark. It even sparked a theological question for the Roller Derby commissioner.
It has been great to see people asking about Unitarian Universalism, and Roller Derby, and hopefully everyone has learned a bit about both. It has been really great to see a positive new piece be so popular. For CNN it was in the top 100 stories in a 24 hour period, and was the top in their lifestyle category.
Another version on YouTube: Local Reverend rolls out big secret this version is the full WHAS version minus the context of the actual news cast.
Another post I will be checking on to see the commentary (but likely won't create an account) is Would your (church?) hire a Roller Derby Girl to be a Senior Minister? The way the question is framed it isn't really what happened (she was not involved with Roller Derby while a candidate), but could be interesting.

I have set up a mobile site at http://m.uupdates.net/. I had already set up a css for small screens, but it was not working on my new phone. If anyone with a mobile phone could let me know how the new mobile site looks I would appreciate it.
Better mobile version on the horizon.
