We are very pleased to announce that the Newsweek / Washington Post OnFaith Forum is using our paper as the basis for this week's discussion.
While many faith traditions have grappled with issues of equality, including same-gender marriage, much of that work has been viewed through a scriptural lens. Interfaith Alliance seeks to shift the perspective on LGBT equality from that of problem to solution, from a scriptural argument to a religious freedom agreement, and to address the issue of equality as informed by our Constitution.
Same-Gender Marriage and Religious Freedom: A Call to Quiet Conversations and Public Debates by Interfaith Alliance President, Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, offers a diversity of ideas based on Interfaith Alliance’s unique advocacy for religious freedom and interfaith exchange. This project’s cross-denominational nature is at the core of Interfaith Alliance’s effort to spark national conversation and action.
This project is made possible through the support of the Arcus Foundation and the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation. If you would like to donate to support this and other initiatives of the Interfaith Alliance please click here.
