Episcopal Priest Joins Board of Equality California

The Rev. Abel Lopez of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena has joined the Board of Directors of Equality California, the lead organization working to overturn Proposition 8 in California. Proposition 8 restored the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman in California and was passed by over 52% of voters in November. Proposition 8 was only about the definition of marriage and did not take away the rights of Domestic Partners in the California Family Code.
"Family Code section 297.5. (a) Registered domestic partners shall have the same rights, protections, and benefits, and shall be subject to the same
responsibilities, obligations, and duties under law, whether they
derive from statutes, administrative regulations, court rules, government policies, common law, or any other provisions or sources of law, as are granted to and imposed upon spouses."
