USA: NAACP Endorsement of Marriage Equality Exposes Rifts

Written by scott on July 13th, 2012

NAACPThe marriage equality endorsement from the NAACP has sparked hot internal debate and prompted some religious conservative leaders to leave the organization, according to Reuters.

“A few local chapter leaders — and the Reverend Keith Ratliff of the NAACP national board — resigned because of the resolution, which passed 10 days after President Barack Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage,” reported the news agency.

The NAACP board of directors called its endorsement in May “a continuation of its historic commitment to equal protection under the law.”
