US183 - Progress for the LGBT Community
We are a nation of many peoples and beliefs. The only way to respect all citizens is to allow each to make personal decisions themselves. Government should not impose its values upon marriage. It should allow marriage equality, including gay marriage. It should also protect the rights of religious organizations to follow their beliefs.
For far too long, marriage and the basic rights of recognized relationships have been limited to straight couples. Civil marriage is a government institution, not a religious one. When a couple is granted a marriage license in a state, they are subsequently granted more than 1,000 federal rights and hundreds of additional state rights, including medical treatment, hospital visitation, employee benefits for families, parenting rights and custodial protections.
