Catholic Culture & Values
Catholics for Equality and our affiliated foundation will work to reclaim and promote core American Catholic values that support the freedom and equality of LGBT people.
We will strengthen Catholics’ conviction that supporting basic freedoms and legal equality for LGBT people is aligned with the best traditions of the Catholic Church and the values of American Catholics.
We will create tools that help pro-equality Catholics reach out to others who may be confused or conflicted about supporting freedom and equality.
We will work with theologians, lay leaders, and religious to develop materials, hold public events, and provide on-the-ground and online opportunities to present American and Catholic social justice teachings on civil and human rights.
As Vatican II taught us, the Church is the People of God. The laity is a source of wisdom and experience in our Church as well as theologians and the hierarchy.
It’s time to make our voices heard!
