A group of Kansas City area ministers said Thursday that a proposed ban on gay marriages in Missouri is unfair and should be defeated.
The Aug. 3 constitutional amendment is “unnecessary and mean-spirited,” said the Rev. Jim Eller, minister at the All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in Kansas City, where the forum was held. About a dozen ministers attended.
Gays are entitled to the same legal rights as other couples, Eller said.
“As a religious leader, I am called to stand for justice, equity and human dignity, as God as is my witness,” Eller said at the forum sponsored by the Constitution Defense League, formed to oppose the proposed marriage ban
