      Michael Mahler

      Erie, PA

More than 175 mayors from across the country have joined the Mayors for the Freedom to Marry Coalition. Several mayors from Pennsylvania are listed.

Erie's mayor Joe Sinnott had been listed, but there had been a miscommunication when he had originally been placed on the page.

The Mayors of Bethlehem, Doylestown, Easton, Macungie, Philadelphia, Newtown and Landsdowne have joined the Mayors of Bethlehem and Philadelphia in supporting full civil marriage rights for the LGBT community.

This is something that we can work on together that will advance our community!

Please urge Mayor Joe Sinnott to sign on to join the Mayors for the Freedom Coalition by signing this petition and sharing it with your friends, families and neighbors.

      ALL mayors in the United States need to join forces to END discrimination agains LGBT individuals.

      Love is Love. Everyone deserves the right to marry whomever they love. This is total discrimination and it needs to end now.

      Every Human deserves the Legal Right to marry the person they love not only in USA, but in the World. In the USA church and state are seperate and church doesn't have to bless the marriage, but the state needs to legalize it. Right now we need to legalize same sex marriage in all states.

      I am petitioning you because discrimination against LGBT members in housing, occupation, healthcare, and marriage is prevalent and growing in America. Today in America, over 29 states have made it legal to evict a person because they are gay and to fire them from their job because they are gay. Regardless of how you personally feel about the morality and choice involved in LGBT lifestyles, our laws and our Constitution were designed to afford equal legal protections for all without discriminating factors. Regardless of your personal religious beliefs, I urge you to interpret and apply the laws as they were designed: to protect all citizens equally. Please support the ongoing struggle of the LGBT community in their effort to secure equal protection and equal rights under the law.

      I'm signing this because other than religious objections there is no logical reason against same sex marriage... and since religion has no place in public policy and/or laws this should be a no brainer.
