Nearly 400 people of faith representing more than a dozen congregations gathered today in Seattle to march in the Faith Ballot Drop Walk. The event culminated in the delivery of completed ballots — all marked “Approved” on Referendum 74 to affirm Washington’s freedom-to-marry law — to the ballot drop box at the King County Administration Building.

Washington’s marriage equality bill got its first public hearings in House and Senate committees on Monday. Faith leaders both Jewish and Christian came forward to testify in support of the bill. Their message to the legislature was clear: stop discriminating against our right to solemnize marriages for gay and lesbian couples. Civil marriage laws should facilitate free religious expression, not hinder it based on one sect’s beliefs.
