NAACP supports marriage equality

NAACP supports marriage equality

CBS News is reporting that the NAACP has voted to support marriage equality:

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) backed a resolution on Saturday in support of “marriage equality.”


Although the civil-rights organization stopped short of coming out in support of same sex-marriage, it expressly opposes states’ anti-same-sex laws.

“We have and will oppose efforts to codify discrimination into law,” Roslyn M. Brock, chair of the NAACP board of directors said in a statement.

The resolution passed by the organization’s board of directors says “the NAACP has opposed and will continue to oppose any national, state, local policy or legislative initiative that seeks to codify discrimination or hatred into the law or to remove the Constitutional rights of LGBT citizens.”

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.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
