The Coalition for Equal Marriage is a British campaign group created in by Conor Marron and James Lattimore, a same-sex couple , to petition in support of civil marriages for gay couples. The coalition's website states the campaign started after Lattimore read a BBC News article regarding the Coalition for Marriage and seeing a comment from Lord Carey stating "The avowed intention to widen the scope of marriage as we see before us is a hostile strike, which rather than strengthening marriage, will destroy its meaning and diminish its importance drastically". Lattimore and his partner began working on the site and mimicked the look and design of the Coalition for Marriage website as a spoof, with Facebook and Twitter campaigns launched a day later. Signatures reached 10, roughly ten days afterwards  and 40, signatures in April

A coalition of black pastors have condemned gay marriage, saying it's incorrect to compare the fight for equal marriage rights to the civil rights movement. The Christian, conservative Thomas More Law Center filed an amicus brief in Michigan's gay marriage trial Wednesday on behalf of black pastors from Detroit, elsewhere in Michigan, and Ohio. The state's ban on gay marriage was overturned in March by U. District Judge Bernard Friedman, but the ruling was put on hold as the case is considered by the U. In the brief, the coalition calls for a reversal of Friedman's decision.
