After gay marriage successes, activists look to build on new faith outreach techniques
Some marriage equality proponents think the issue may move to Colorado, Illinois, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Oregon or some combination of those states. Wherever the effort goes, advocates say, faith will be a part of the mix. It may not sound very powerful, but gay advocate Debra Peevey said that a two-inch green button played a major role in convincing voters to legalize marriage equality this month in her home state of Washington. “Another Person of Faith Approves R. 74,” said the button, which refers to the ballot initiative that wound up legalizing marriage equality in Washington.
