Signers of the No Longer Silent Phoenix Declaration
(only Arizona Clergy members are listed, but the Declaration is also supported by many others - Updated 16 April 2010)

Note: Initially, there were nine Roman Catholic priests who signed the Declaration. After the appointment of a new Bishop in the Diocese of Phoenix, a number of them have complied with a request to remove their names from the list of signers. We appreciated their witness to the dignity of GLBT persons and their ecumenical spirit. We remain grateful for their support.
