It is my joy and privilege to announce that Friends for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Concerns (FLGBTQC) (http://flgbtqc.quaker.org/) has joined many other faith groups on a friend of the court brief filedon October 4 by Kramer Levin in Smith v Wright, the Arkansas marriage equality case before the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. (More info here: http://www.freedomtomarry.org/states/entry/c/arkansas.)
Yet again I will tell you that, as with the other Kramer-Levin briefs we've signed on to, I highly
recommend reading this. It's easy to read, and brilliant. And
super-encouraging for people of faith, and people in faith communities,
who support marriage equality for same-sex couples -- and also who are working to prevent some faiths from being legally privileged over others.
You can read the brief here:

Congratulations to all the signatories! And deep gratitude to everyone who worked on this brief.
