In our newest publication, Same-Gender Marriage & Religious Freedom, Rev. Gaddy has written an extraordinary piece that calls for a deepening discussion on what it means to be an American, specifically when it comes to the issue of LGBT equality. He asks that we shift our perspective on same-gender marriage from that of problem to solution and that we look to the Constitution to inform our opinions.
His work creates a new space for us to have these important conversations and he makes room for everyone, regardless of where they are on this issue. It is an extraordinary work, one that has prompted interest from our affiliates, mainline and minority faith traditions, the media, local chapters of PFLAG (Parents & Friends of Lesbians and Gays), Mormon organizations, advocacy groups, a governor and even the U.S. Consulate General of Hong Kong and Macau. We have distributed more than 2,500 booklets by mail and thousands more have been downloaded from our website. (You can download your copy here.)
