Here are some links to items that you might find of interest:

1) While the big news from the Creating Change conference this week is that the “NAACP president says group supports extending rights to transgender residents in Maryland,” the same Washington Post article notes that Maryland’s Catholic First Lady also addressed the conference on the state’s marriage equality bill, noting ““We’re all very diverse and that’s what makes us so strong, but religion should never play a part in what the laws of our state are, and that’s what we’re trying to convey to religious leaders who are opponents of the bill.”

2) The Catholic diocese of Manchester, New Hampshire, supports a legislative state “Bill [that] would let wedding vendors refuse service to engaged same-sex couples,” according to The Nashua Telegraph.
