Freedom to Marry

    1. Petition by

      Lisa Spinelli

      Newburyport, MA

Marriage is a right that all people should have. We are lucky enough to have the freedom to marry in Massachusetts, and yet our marriage is still not recognized by the federal government. Please help us continue the progress for an equal America. Please join Mayors For the Freedom to Marry across the country.

Mayors for the Freedom to Marry is a broad-based and nonpartisan group of mayors who believe that all people should be able to share in the love and commitment of marriage. Led by Mayors Michael Bloomberg of New York City, Thomas M. Menino of Boston, Annise Parker of Houston, Jerry Sanders of San Diego and  Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles, the "Mayors for Marriage" hail from culturally, racially and geographically diverse cities - but they all share one important value: a common commitment to fairness.

      Face the facts: We were "all" created by the same "Creator" ; heterosexual, homosexual, transsexual-transgender, hermophrodite (both sets of genitals), and bi-sexual! This was all intended! Pedophylia is not a "sexuality", and should not be assumed to go with a specific sexuality! So let's start getting along together, and accept our genders and sexualities! We of the LGBT community simply want to be accepted as ourselves, and have the same rights, and right to marry with all the benefits of heterosexuals!

      I want all Americans to have this very basic right, including having the federal government recognize their marriage.
