Thousands March for 1 man 1 woman marriage in D.C


WASHINGTON – Thousands marched for marriage on Saturday while churches nationwide participated in ‘Stand for Marriage Sunday’ today as the U.S. Supreme Court gears up to hear oral argument surrounding states’ rights pertaining to the definition of marriage.
Today’s effort had been organized by the Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council, which urged its “Watchmen on the Wall” network of over 45,000 pastors to show a video about biblical marriage, distribute bulletins about the issue and spend time in prayer with their congregations over Tuesday’s court hearing.
“The consequences this decision could have on our religious freedom, the freedom to believe and live according to those beliefs, are staggering,” said President Tony Perkins in a statement earlier this month. “Should the court redefine marriage, our religious liberty—the foundation for all of our freedoms—will be at risk.”
“The nation will not accept a redefinition of marriage from the court. Similar to the court’s inability to ‘resolve’ the issue of abortion for the nation in the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, the court will not resolve this issue either,” he continued. “Religious liberty is in jeopardy. The threat is not hypothetical; it is a clear and present danger.”
