"We dedicate our lives to fostering faith and compassion, and we work daily to promote justice and fairness for all..."

"...Standing on these beliefs, we think that it is morally just to grant equal opportunities and responsibilities to loving, committed same-sex couples. There can be no justification for the law treating people differently on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity."
