Between 120,000-200,000 Rally to Protect Marriage in Puerto Rico!

 

Puerto Rico is ardently pro-marriage! George Will writes that "91% oppose same-sex marriage".

The entire population of Puerto Rico is three-and-a-half million, so about 5% of the total population rallied to show their support for marriage:

Between 120,000 and 200,000 people blanketed the Capitol Building in San Juan, Puerto Rico, today to encourage the island's lawmakers to defend marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

Bearing signs stating “Puerto Rico stands up to defend the family,” tens of thousands of protesters called on the ruling Popular Democratic Party to turn back any measure that would redefine the family unit.

The crowd represented a significant turnout on island of three-and-a-half million. “Traffic was snarled for miles leading toward the San Jun islet as buses packed with marchers headed toward the north side of the Capitol,” according to the Puerto Rican-based Caribbean Business.

Organized in just three weeks, the cresting crowds represented people of different religious backgrounds, as well as denominations ranging from Pentecostal, Baptist, Catholic, and Disciples of Christ. (LifeSiteNews)
