Pennsylvania Pastors Speak Out for Marriage

 

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is already under fire for her recent announcement that she will not uphold PA's law defining marriage as one man and one woman. The Pennsylvania Pastor’s Network held a press conference at the state capitol in Harrisburg yesterday asking Kane to change her position and uphold state law.

The Pennsylvania Pastor's Network, which is led by former Berks County state representative Sam Rohrer, held a news conference at the state capitol in Harrisburg Wednesday morning. The group is presenting a letter to Attorney General Kathleen Kane telling her that she is not upholding the duties of her office by refusing to defend the suit.

The suit was filed last week by the ACLU and several same sex couples, including one from Northampton County. It seeks to overturn a law passed in 1996 that prevents gay marriage. Kane said she will not defend the suit because the law is discriminatory. She says Governor Tom Corbett's office is allowed to defend the suit if it chooses to. -WFMJ
