Episcopal Bishop of Delaware Wayne Wright Voices Support for Marriage Equality


Exciting news for our campaign! Episcopal Bishop of Delaware Wayne Wright has come out in support of marriage for all committed couples in Delaware.


DEBishop.jpgWith 37 congregations and a history that goes back nearly 300 years, the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware is a cornerstone of our state's faith community. Support from Bishop Wright continues building our momentum for passage this year.

In this year's annual address, Bishop Wright said:

"Now, I want to conclude with a witness to the moral power and moral responsibility of the Church... In a few weeks, the Delaware General Assembly will begin considering two landmark pieces of legislation. The first will allow full marriage equality for Delaware couples, regardless of their gender. Just two weeks ago, the President of the United States spoke about this in his Second Inaugural Address. Here is what he said, 'Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.' I want you to know that I agree with him."

We are so thankful for the Bishop's outspoken support for the freedom to marry in Delaware. We know how critical support from people of faith is to our campaign, and we are committed to continuing our work reaching out to faith leaders and faith communities in every corner of the state.

Did the Bishop really say the Second Inaugural Address or is that a typo? President Obama made that statement this year, which would have been his fifth inaugural address… just a minor point of information. This is still fantastic news!
