Orthodox Christians Are Marching for Marriage

 

Thanks to our friends at Crown Them with Glory for promoting the 2015 March for Marriage!

SAVE THE DATE: March for Marriage

Saturday, April 25th

Book your flight and plan your trip to join us that morning on the National Mall in D.C. for the March for Marriage, and the proceeding Orthodox Gathering

April 25th represents the third March for Marriage in Washington D.C., and is set to take place within days of when the Supreme Court is expected to hear oral arguments on the cases before them that will decide the national legal status of civil gay "marriage." It is projected that this ruling will seriously impact religious freedom in the USA.

The march is a peaceful rally and quite comparable to the March for Life. We invite you to make every effort to attend the rally, and encourage your priests, brothers and sisters in Christ, and leaders and members of religious communities in your area, to do likewise. Come out in support of marriage between one man and one woman, modeled from our Lord's love for His Bride: the Church. With a blessing to pursue this work from a number of our bishops, many priests believe it is time we had a national pan-Orthodox Christian movement. A strong, vibrant, and clear message is needed from our Church on the matter of the Mystery of Holy Matrimony, as well as an enumeration upon God blessed sexuality and gender roles, toward the strengthening of family life.

Be sure to visit Crown Them with Glory's full March for Marriage section here, and thanks to all marchers for standing with us to defend the invaluable union of one man and one woman in marriage.
