Rev. Al Sharpton has recorded an ad for the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) Americans for Marriage Equality campaign.

“As a Baptist minister, I don't have the right to impose my beliefs on anyone else,” Sharpton says in the 30-second video. “So if committed gay and lesbian couples want to marry, that's their business. None of us should stand in their way.”

“All of us must fight for what's fair and for what's right,” he adds. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Sharpton also lent his voice to a second ad tailored for Marylanders. Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley has introduced legislation to make Maryland the seventh state to legalize gay marriage.
