USA, New Mexico: Faith Leaders Support Marriage Equality

New Mexico MapA group of faith leaders in New Mexico has come out in support of marriage equality there.

On Top Magazine reports:

Nearly 140 faith leaders endorsed legalizing gay marriage in New Mexico in a full page ad that ran on Wednesday in 4 major newspapers. The ads ran in the Albuquerque Journal, The Santa Fe New Mexican, Las Cruces Sun News and The Alibi. “Today’s ads represent the outpouring of support among people of faith in New Mexico who know that every gay or lesbian person is a member of someone’s family, and should be treated with compassion and respect,” said the Reverend David Wilson Rogers, Pastor at First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Carlsbad. “Many of us serve thousands of families every year and the freedom to marry is consistent with our faith and our values.”

I still remember when there was practically no one of faith speaking out for the LGBT community. Such a welcome change.
