There’s a new group of evangelicals supporting marriage equality.
The Dallas Voice reports:
Evangelicals for Marriage Equality is serious and group spokesman Brandon Robertson has some impressive statistics to back him up: A third of evangelicals 34 to 48 support marriage equality and 43 percent of those 18 to 33 support marriage equality, according to Robertson. The group planned to launch with an ad that was rejected by Christianity Today. “There are hundreds of verses in the Bible that talk about love. There aren’t any that talk about the definition of civil marriage,” the ad reads. Whoa. That’s kind of racy for Christianity Today. How dare these evangelical extremists actually read the Bible.
More and more religious groups are supporting marriage equality, and it’s great to see some evangelicals jumping on the bandwagon!
