Clergy and Faith Leader Statement

STATEMENT OF NORTH CAROLINA CLERGY AND FAITH LEADERS AGAINST AMENDMENT ONE

As clergy and leaders in our faith traditions, we are mandated by God to demonstrate and protect love in all its forms and to stand for justice for all of creation. In faithful response to this calling, we commit ourselves, along with thousands of other Christians, Jews, Muslims and other people of faith around North Carolina, to voice our opposition to Amendment One, to witness to the harms it would cause ALL of God’s children in North Carolina and to use the gifts God has given us to defeat this amendment.

We, the undersigned, stand in moral opposition to Amendment One and urge North Carolina voters to vote AGAINST this extreme and harmful change to our constitution.
