Subject: Who Should Have the Right to Marry? Join the AFSC Peace Building Dialogues!

Who Should Have the Right to Marry?  A New Faith-based Online Dialogue,
Starting the Week of May 17 

Please forward this message to friends, family, colleagues, and others
on your listservs who might want to participate - those who share your
perspective, and especially those who don't! 


The American Friends Service Committee, putting Quaker values into
action, invites you to join an online discussion about religion, law,
and marriage rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.


Is marriage a matter of faith or a matter of law?  Would a
constitutional amendment defining marriage affect your own religious
freedom in any way?  Have you talked about this issue in your own faith
or spiritual community?


In our Peace Building Dialogues, ordinary people can add their voices to
a discussion that has been dominated by the dynamics of polarization and
sound-bite politics.

This two-week dialogue will begin the week of May 17. Register now or
learn more at:  http://build-peace.weblab.org.

Through these online dialogues, we hope people from many different faith
and spiritual traditions can find ways to acknowledge our differences,
affirm our commonly-held values, and continue to engage each other with
respect and love.
