Rallying Others to Participate in the Movement
Invite others to participate in the movement of advocacy for Marriage Equality.
Not only is it important to involve participants in coffee klatches that encourage advocacy for Marriage Equality, it is also necessary to rally support from among those who will not participate in coffee klatches.
Every participant in coffee klatches should rally general support from among friends and family who do not choose to participate in a coffee klatch. It should be a deliberate activity within their daily social interactions continuing as long as it takes to achieve marriage equality.
There is no public interest in excluding gay people from marriage.
Religious organizations are largely free to be organized and governed without the interference of government.
The government can allow gay persons to marry and this does not interfere with the authority of any religious organization.
The Constitution guarantees equal protection for all people, which means nondiscriminatory treatment.
The institution of marriage as regulated by the government should be free from discrimination and is subject to equal protection under the law.
Equal protection means that it is discriminatory for the government to use any one religion's notion of marriage to exclude same-sex couples from marriage.
