Andover Newton President Hails Marriage Equality Decision

Andover Newton President the Rev. Martin B. Copenhaver issued the following response on Friday, June 26, to the Supreme Court's 5-4 decision legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide:

"This is a day for great celebration! Marriage equality was always the right thing to do, but now it is recognized as a fundamental right.

"A few hours ago I was at the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly. In a few hours I will be at the General Synod of the United Church of Christ. Both faith communities have fought long and tirelessly on behalf of marriage equality, so these are both wonderful settings in which to celebrate this shining moment in our country's history."

Andover Newton Theological School is an open, welcoming, and affirming seminary that honors the marriages of all of our students, faculty, staff, and other community members.
