“We hope and pray for fairness and equality to be extended to more families”
Spencer Clark, executive director of Mormons for Equality, has been invited to join clergy and other religious leaders at an interfaith prayer service to be held this Tuesday, March 26. On that day the U.S. Supreme Court will begin to hear oral arguments related to Prop 8 and DOMA.
The service is one of many pro-marriage events held this week in Washington DC and around the country.
“I’m happy to be representing Mormons who support marriage equality on the program, and I’ve been asked to read John 13:34-35 during the service,” says Spencer. “I’m looking forward to the opportunity that Mormons will have in the coming days to speak out and join vigils and rallies across the country as we hope and pray for fairness and equality to be extended to more families.”
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
The prayer service starts at 7:15 am.at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation. The event has standing-room-only tickets left, so interested parties should request their tickets as soon as possible. A United for Marriage rally starts on the steps of the Supreme Court at 8:30 am.
