Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
I’m writing today to ask you to consider Californian’s religious freedom when AB 43, the 2007 “Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Protection Act” reaches your desk.
Congregations like St. Monica’s Catholic Church – where you go – should be able to exclude same-sex couples from the marriages they solemnize.
However, congregations like The Westwood Hills Congregational Church – right up the road – should also be able to exercise their beliefs and perform same-sex marriages.
California same-sex couples already have all the legal rights of marriage – why are you standing in the way of their religious right to marriage?
