Pride Agenda Issues Video Response to Myth that Marriage Equality Threatens Religious Freedom
Video Features Prominent Massachusetts Clergy
Statement by Pride Agenda Executive Director Alan Van Capelle
April 21, 2009--“For too long, the religious right has controlled the religious debate around marriage for same-sex couples by promoting misinformation that marriage equality threatens religious freedom. Today a diverse group of clergy speaks directly to New Yorkers about their experiences since Massachusetts legalized marriage for same-sex couples.
The Empire State Pride Agenda is committed to refuting myths that have been articulated across the country about the consequences of marriage for same-sex couples. This issue is too important for our families and us to let them go unanswered in New York.”
