Jon Huntsman is Latest Mormon to Endorse Marriage Equality!
Today, former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman joined the growing ranks of Latter-Day Saints who have come out in support of civil marriage equality for gays and lesbians.
“Over the last several years we have been seeing more and more Mormons from across the political spectrum come out in support of marriage equality,” said Spencer W. Clark, Executive Director of Mormons for Marriage Equality. “I am thrilled that Gov. Huntsman has taken this stand and hope that it will prompt other Mormons to join us in building stronger families by ensuring that same-sex couples and their children have access to the same protection and benefits under the law that my family has. As Huntsman stated, it’s the right thing to do and appeals to the American values of freedom of conscience and civil equality.”
