Yesterday I responded to a great article that Mary Zeiss Stange wrote in USA Today. Stange asserted that Martin Luther would have supported gay marriage. In Massachusetts, the Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry would probably agree. Look next Monday, July 16th in USA Today for the responses to Stange’s article. Hope this letter is one of them:
Letter to the Editor:
Mary Zeiss Stange’s (“When it comes to gays, ‘WhatÂ would Luther do?'” 7.9.07) assertion that Luther would support gay marriage is in agreement with over 1,000 clergy representing 23 faith traditions in Massachusetts.Â On May 17, 2007, the third anniversary of same-sex marriage in our state,Â an Episcopal clergywoman was the 1,000th signer of the Religious Coalition for the Freedom to MarryÂ declaration of support for same-sex marriage.
