26 US religious leaders affirm: Marriage is union of one man, one woman

Catholic World News - December 07, 2010

Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, joined 25 other religious leaders in affirming that “marriage is the permanent and faithful union of one man and one woman.”

Representatives of leading conservative Protestant denominations (such as the Southern Baptist Convention and the Assemblies of God), as well as Orthodox Jewish, Mormon, and Sikh leaders, signed the statement.

Notably absent from the signatories are the heads of mainline Protestant denominations such as the Episcopal Church, the United Methodist Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Presbyterian Church (USA).
