Clergy Support Marriage Equality -- But We Still Need Your Help

I am so excited to tell you that in the first 48 hours, more than 1,000 ordained clergy have signed the "Open Letter to Religious Leaders on Marriage Equality." They represent more than 40 denominations and almost every state in the country. These clergy are standing together to affirm that same sex couples have the right to civil and religious marriage.

But think about what it would mean if we could demonstrate by the end of the summer that 5,000 0r 10,000 religious leaders support marriage equality -- especially as this issue will be hotly debated during the coming months.

Together, we can demonstrate that there is widespread religious support for the right to marry, grounded in our faith commitments.

Can you send a link to this blog to every clergy you know who might sign? Or blog about this yourself? Or copy and paste this link:

into an email and send it on to clergy you know?
