Dear Governor Gregoire:
On behalf of the Leadership Team of First Congregational Church of Bellingham, WA, I would like to thank you for your support of marriage equality in the State of WA. Our faith community has been an “Open & Affirming” congregation since 1999 and we believe that all are to be treated with respect, dignity, love, compassion, & justice.
We appreciate your careful thought in coming to your decision to support marriage equality. With your commitment, our hope is that it will not only be legal for same sex couples to marry in our State, but throughout the entire United States one day as well.
We applaud your leadership concerning this issue of justice.
