Proposed Federal Marriage Amendment to the United States Constitution

Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), 2004

This resolution is in opposition to the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment to the United States Constitution. The position taken in the resolution sites two long held views of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) - 1) "the importance of the foundational text" of the US Constitution, and, "warned of the dangers of tampering with it ." 2) The "clear policy supporting full civil marriage equality for gay men and lesbians." The resolution ends by opposing any proposal to amend the United States Constitution to limit these rights.
