Archbishop of Baltimore Lori to Address Fundraiser of Several Hundred Marriage Activists

 

The Washington Post:

"...Lori, who leads the nation’s oldest Roman Catholic diocese, is listed atop an invitation for the event sponsored by the Maryland Marriage Alliance, the leading organization opposed to Question 6 on the November ballot.

Several hundred people are expected to attend the gathering at an historic Catholic seminary in Baltimore, but it is closed to both the general public and media, according to a spokeswoman for the Maryland Catholic Conference, a member of the anti-same-sex marriage coalition.

“There’s no glitz or glamor in this event,” said Catholic Conference spokeswoman Kathy Dempsey. “We’re not trying to impress anyone.. . . We just hope this event will energize and organize our faith communities.”
