Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance, celebrated the introduction of The Equality Act in Congress today, saying:

“Our country is founded on the idea that all are created equal — a value shared across faith traditions and philosophies. The aspirations of our founders have not always managed to find full expression in society. The Equality Act is a step forward to the full — and overdue — citizenship rights for LGBTQ+ persons. This cause must be championed by people of all faiths and philosophies, and of all identities and orientations.”

“It is not about gay rights. It is about human rights.”

Interfaith Alliance celebrates religious freedom by championing individual rights, promoting policies that protect both religion and democracy, and uniting diverse voices to challenge extremism. Founded in 1994, Interfaith Alliance brings together members from 75 faith traditions as well as those without a faith tradition to protect faith and freedom.
