SENATE PRESIDENT PAIVA WEED & RI STATE SENATORS: PASS THE MARRIAGE EQUALITY LAW

To be delivered to The Rhode Island State Senate

Petition Statement

Given the overwhelming passage of the Marriage Equality bill in the Rhode Island House of Representatives, which reflected the overwhelming majority of Rhode Islanders in favor of equal rights for all of us, we ask that you let S0038 be heard in committee and allowed out onto the floor for a vote immediately .
There are currently 1,109 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

We want to remind you of your oath to uphold your oath of office, which includes upholding the separation of religious beliefs from civil laws. This bill is not a test of your religious fidelity, or an assault on you religious beliefs, or on “the sanctity of marriage,” (private sentiments which should have no place ever in your decisions on the floor of the legislature), but as so cogently explained by Rep. Chris Blazejewski, this is a matter of civil rights, bringing civil justice to all families. Thank you.
