Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie On Why He Supports Marriage Equality

"My familial ties are one of the many reasons that I’ve become involved in raising money to help push through Referendum 74 (R-74), to approve the February 2012 bill that would legalize same-sex marriage in the state of Washington. If Washington State can pass this referendum, we’d be the first state to pass gay marriage by a popular vote. The opposition is very strong but the thing that gives me hope for the future is that marriage equality is polling at about 80 percent among people under the age of 25.

Minnesota newspapers on marriage, voting amendments: a resounding 'No'

Minnesotans may be split on this fall’s two proposed constitutional amendments, but Minnesota’s newspapers are not. Through Wednesday, no paper has endorsed Minnesota’s anti-gay-marriage amendment...the opposition as of now comes from papers big and small, chain and independent, rural and metro. Newspaper readers tend to skew older … just like the voting public.

The Catholic Case for Marriage Equality

If marriage is on the ballot in your state, chances are you've received a "personal appeal" from your bishop. Marriage equality, the letter says, doesn't reflect the church's concept of family. My letter to you makes a different personal appeal, asking you, on behalf of your gay and lesbian friends and family, to consider the notion that our faith actually supports the case for marriage equality and pro-equality candidates.
