Voice for Equality: Rush Holt
April 21, 2009
U.S. Representative Rush Holt (D-NJ) serves on the Committee on Education and Labor, the Committee on Natural Resources, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and the LGBT Equality caucus among other caucuses.
In an essay for eQuality Giving, he wrote, "Life commitments that are monogamous and mutually supportive have a wide array of benefits in social, economic, and personal terms Allowing all people to enter into them strengthens the institution of marriage, it does not weaken it. Recognizing the legal rights associated with marriage regardless of sexual orientation will not diminish the number of people who enter into marriage, nor the satisfaction those that are married find in their relationships. No marriage is made weaker because two women or two men are living together somewhere in New Jersey as a married couple."
