AJC Opposes Constitutional Amendment on Same-Sex Marriage
September 5, 2004
New York — The American Jewish Committee today adopted a resolution opposing the proposed Constitutional amendment regarding same-sex marriage.
The full text of the AJC resolution, adopted by the Board of Governors, follows:
“AJC opposes the recently proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would (1) restrict marriage to the union of a man and a woman, and (2) preclude the construction of the federal or any state constitution as requiring that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than a union of a man and a woman. Such an amendment would enshrine discrimination into our social fabric.”
