CNA: Momentum Builds Around National March for Marriage

 

NOM's Communications Director Thomas Peters spoke with the Catholic News Agency about the March 26 March for Marriage NOM is organizing:

Plans for a national March for Marriage in downtown Washington, D.C., are generating excitement and enthusiastic support, according to organizers of the event.

The upcoming March for Marriage “is an opportunity to witness to the culture about our pro-marriage beliefs,” said Thomas Peters, cultural director for the National Organization for Marriage.

Peters told CNA that coming together visibly to support the institution of marriage is critically important.

The National Organization for Marriage announced in late January that it would be hosting a March for Marriage in the nation’s capital on March 26.

The date coincides with the first day of oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in the case Hollingsworth v. Perry. The lawsuit challenges California’s Proposition 8, a state measure recognizing marriage existing solely between a man and a woman.

... Neither the schedule nor the official route of the upcoming March for Marriage has been made public, but information will be added to the march website, marriagemarch.org, as it becomes available.

Despite the limited amount of information released thus far, Peters said that reactions have “been very positive” and enthusiastic.

“We actually just have a lot of people calling the office saying, ‘What can I do to help?’” he explained.

Peters added that the march will aim to create a “very broad, diverse coalition” in defense of marriage. (CNA)
