An Open Letter to Religious Leaders on Marriage Equality

The Open Letter was developed at a colloquium of theologians sponsored by the Religious Institute, an ecumenical, interfaith organization dedicated to advocating for sexual health, education, and justice in faith communities and society, and funded by Freedom to Marry.

"America needs to know that many faith leaders and theologians from diverse religious traditions strongly believe that all people have a God-given right to lead lives which fully express love, mutuality and commitment—including the right to marry," said the Reverend Debra W. Haffner, director of the Religious Institute.

Endorsements are only accepted from ordained clergy, professional religious educators, theologians, and staff of religious institutions.
