The support for marriage equality by a straight, black Baptist minister and a gay Unitarian minister further shows that marriage is a social justice issue that crosses falsely drawn racial and sexual orientation lines, write the Rev. Dennis W. Wiley and the Rev. Robert M. Hardies, co-chairmen of DC Clergy United for Marriage Equality in Washington, D.C. "Opponents of marriage equality would like us to believe that one cannot be both pro-God and pro-gay," they write. "Yet we lead a coalition of nearly 200 D.C. clergy who support marriage equality precisely because of our commitment to God's inclusive love and justice."
