Bishop Gibbs to co-chair Michigan for Marriage campaign

Bishop Gibbs to co-chair Michigan for Marriage campaign

From Episcopal News Service:

As Michigan awaits a historic marriage equality ruling from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, a bipartisan group of respected state leaders has stepped forward to Co-Chair Michigan for Marriage, the state’s marriage equality campaign. The public education campaign, which launched in May, aims to broaden the marriage conversation across the state, showcase the diversity of Michiganders who support marriage equality, and send the message that Michigan is ready for marriage.

The co-chairs are The Right Reverend Wendell N. Gibbs, Jr., the Tenth Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan; Congressman Dan Kildee; former Republican Speaker of the House Chuck Perricone; and AFL-CIO President Karla Swift.“Same-sex couples love each other, raise children and support their families no differently than opposite-sex couples,” said Co-Chair Karla Swift. “The government’s refusal to recognize these relationships deprives thousands of Michigan families the ability to take care of and provide for their family members.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
