Fenty to sign marriage bill at All Souls

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) will sign the bill to legalize same-sex marriage in the District at All Souls Unitarian Church in Northwest at 10:30 a.m. Friday, several sources said.

The Rev. Robert Hardies, senior pastor of the church, is co-chairman of D.C. Clergy United for Marriage Equality, a coalition of ministers founded earlier this year to counter a group of clergy opposed to same-sex marriage.

"We're honored to be able to host this historic bill signing," he said. "We believe this is a historic step forward for justice and human rights in our nation's capital."
