In addition to scores of national TV, cable and radio news covering the March for Marriage, online media is promoting it as well:
Tuesday, March 26, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments to determine if Proposition 8 – the citizens initiative approved by the people of California in 2008 to protect marriage – is constitutional or not. This is an extremely important case because the question of whether Americans in general have the right to protect traditional marriage will be decided. As such, the March for Marriage is being organized to take place on Tuesday. The March is being organized by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) along with a broad coalition of pro-family organizations and groups, as well as African-American, Latino, Catholic, and Protestant leaders. The Archdiocese of Chicago is encouraging Chicago Catholics to attend the March for Marriage in Washington, D.C.
History is coming at us so fast it’s hard to keep up. But we need to remember that this week, above all weeks, is a time for extra prayer and penance. I don’t want to make too much of it, but it seems poignant that so many points of history are converging on this one week. Proponents of traditional marriage are also staging a march in Washington, DC on Tuesday.
It is a question that should be addressed this week by the U.S. Supreme Court as oral arguments begin Tuesday, March 26th on California's Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage, followed by arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defined marriage for federal government benefits. Coinciding with the opening case will be the "March for Marriage" in D.C. as a show of support for traditional marriage.
"...we have continued to give unique status in law to the union of a man and a woman—the only relationship that produces children—as a permanent, monogamous, and exclusive relationship. We uphold this ideal in the interest of children, of limited, constitutional government, and of America’s future.
That’s a message Heritage will convey at an event today featuring Ryan Anderson, Kellie Fiedorek of the Alliance Defending Freedom, and tea party activist Doug Mainwaring, a gay man committed to maintaining the definition of marriage because of its importance for children. Tomorrow, we’ll be joining many other Americans gathering on the National Mall for the March for Marriage."
Supporters of both traditional marriage and same-sex unions will converge on the nation’s capital toward the end of this month as the Supreme Court takes up two cases that could do to marriage what Roe v. Wade did to unborn human life.The National Organization for Marriage is holding a March for Marriage on Tuesday morning, March 26, as the high court hears oral arguments in the first case, a challenge to California’s Proposition 8, which changed that state’s constitution to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Arguments are expected to be heard the next day in a case contesting the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
