New partnership in CA seeks to increase religious support for marriage
May 14, 2009
After the dust settled and all of the poll analysis of Proposition 8 in California was completed, it became clear that one of the key roadblocks to marriage equality was self-described religious voters. Here's what ABC News reported:
People who identified themselves as practicing Christians were highly likely to support the constitutional amendment, with 85 percent of evangelical Christians, 66 percent of Protestants and 60 percent of Roman Catholics favoring it.
With that in mind today the Human Rights Campaign announced a new strategic partnership with California Faith for Equality(CFE) - a statewide group established to educate, support and mobilize California's faith communities on LGBT equality. The partnership joins CFE and its 6,000 supporting faith leaders with both HRC's Religion and Faith Program expertise as well as support from the National Field Department to broaden, diversify and deepen religious support for marriage equality in California.
