Tell Ohio: Repeal the gay marriage ban!

    2. Petition by

      Jordan Cable

      Cleveland, OH

In 2004, as discriminatory constitutional amendments were pushed in numerous states throughout the nation, Ohio citizens voted for an anti-relationship recognition constitutional amendment which passed and wrote discrimination into Ohio's constitution. State advocacy groups are working to both repeal such discrimination and end the exclusion of same-sex couples and their families from marriage.

With our faith and determination we can address this issue and stop such discrimination. Please review the petition and show your support in putting a stop to the gay marriage ban in Ohio.

      Gay marriage is a human right. The only moral issue surrounding it is the moral necessity to treat all people equally. After living together 24 years and raising 2 children, we finally gave up and went to New York to be married.
