Rhode Island's Senate Judiciary Committee is set to vote on several same-sex marriage bills Tuesday, and Bishop Thomas J. Tobin of the Diocese of Providence is speaking out:
"As the Rhode Island Senate prepares to take action on legislation that would seek to legitimize 'same-sex marriage,' I once again urge members of the Senate to stand strong in resisting this immoral and unnecessary proposition and to defend marriage and family as traditionally defined. We should be very clear about this: it is only with grave risk to our spiritual well-being and the common good of our society that we dare to redefine what God himself has created. My prayer is that the senators will have all the wisdom and courage they need to do the right thing in this moment of decision."
We need the people of Rhode Island to TAKE ACTION today!
Call and email your state senators and urge them to protect marriage for the next generation.
