Equal Rights Issues

Equal rights for all people, not just the majority. It is a moral issue when any minority group is denied equal civil rights. A constitutional amendment banning same-gender marriage, forced on the country by right-wing religious-political extremists, would be the first amendment in the nation’s history that actually denies, rather than guarantees, civil rights for a particular group of citizens. So-called “defense of marriage” legislation will be looked back upon as just as foolish as segregation laws and laws prohibiting mixed-race marriages are now. Gay people have been getting married for years. No amount of legislation can prevent two people of the same gender from making holy, lifetime commitments to each other. This is not a religious issue; it is a civil rights issue. Currently, the federal government denies a minority segment of the population more than 1,100 civil rights even though they have paid taxes—rights that are taken for granted by heterosexual couples. Hope for Peace & Justice is fighting the immorality of discrimination and special rights for select citizens.
