There has been a lot said lately about faith communities opposing marriage equality. In fact, a coalition of faiths including The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Association of Evangelicals, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod joined in filing a brief to the 10th Circuit Court opposing marriage equality.
As a Baptist pastor (American Baptist Churches USA) who is in favor of marriage equality, I am frustrated that this debate is often characterized as one between religious morality or secular amorality. People of faith are not of one mind on this; heck, Baptists are not of one mind on this, and I would posit that the people within the organizations mentioned above are not of one mind on this.
Many people of faith see the moral issue as one of equal treatment before the law; of affirming people as they were created and of honoring love in all its forms; certainly this is my fervent religious conviction.
