The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) wants to see the characters played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet on Modern Family marry on the ABC Wednesday night sitcom.

The ACLU has launched a campaign to marry Mitchell Pritchett (played by Ferguson) and Cameron Tucker (Stonestreet), who are raising their daughter Lily.

“The freedom to marry is being advanced in American living rooms as much as in court rooms,” Anthony D. Romero, executive director of ACLU, said in a statement.

“As we wait for the Supreme Court to rule, we want to keep this issue on the minds and screens of Americans everywhere,” he added, a reference to two cases before the Supreme Court related to gay marriage.

“The ACLU has been working since 1936 to guarantee the rights of lesbian and gay people, and we see sending Cam and Mitch down the aisle before 13 million American viewers as the perfect next step,” Romero said.

The pitch, however, comes too late as ABC will air the show's season finale next week and the high court is expected hand down its decisions next month.

“Love this!” Ferguson tweeted. “Thank you ACLU! Maybe once Prop 8 is overturned!”
