Marriage equality will foster stability

  • Article
text size: AAA

As the pastor of an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ in Arlington Heights, I am writing about an issue of fairness and equality for all families in Illinois. It is unfair and unjust to deny families and couples the legal protections and dignities they deserve based on sexual orientation, and I strongly support the Illinois Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act.

Marriage strengthens relationships, fosters stability and makes families stronger. Like all Illinoisans, gay and lesbian couples have the same values of love, commitment and the desire to build a strong family. The Senate has already passed this important legislation, and now it's up to the House. Please support marriage equality by voting yes on the Illinois Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act. The time is now!
