Auburn Seminary president urges support of gay marriage

It's time for government to catch up with the rapidly growing majority of Americans — across all demographics and religious affiliations — who are coming out to support marriage equality, said the Rev. Dr. Katharine Rhodes Henderson, president of Auburn Theological Seminary. Henderson urged the U.S. Supreme Court to strike discrimination from federal marriage laws to ensure that all couples who choose to enter the sacred bonds of marriage receive equal rights and protections.

“My faith says I should do unto others as I would want them to do unto me. I believe I should be able to marry the person I love," Hendersen wrote. "How then can I believe others shouldn’t have the same right, just because they love a person of the same gender? As people of faith, we believe that every human being is created in the image of God and has sacred worth. Laws that grant rights and protections to some but not to others, simply because of gender or sexual orientation, are moral outrages."
