Thank You President Obama!
It has finally happened! President Obama declared his support for marriage equality! In an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts, President Obama told the country and the world that he has come to the decision that he personally supports same sex marriage. What's more, he cited his Christian faith as a motivating factor in coming to this decision. We could not be more thankful for this historic support!
Join Believe Out Loud in sending the President our thanks by signing our virtual Thank You card. We'll send it to the White House this month!
Dear President Obama:
With joy and gratitude in our hearts, we thank you for declaring your support for same-sex marriage.
Like you, we are faithful Christians who support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality not in spite of our Christian faith, but because of it.
Our Christian voices for equality are getting stronger everyday and we thank you for lending yours to the chorus.
Many, many thanks,
Believe Out Loud
