Rhode Islanders responded to the call last night and made their voice heard at the State House! A crowd of 200+ brought signs and chanted their support for marriage as the union of one man and one woman:
With nearly 200 in attendance, church leaders announced a new coalition that is meant to serve as a counterpoint to ”Rhode Islanders United for Marriage,” which was announced Monday by gay marriage supporters.
The group — “Faith Alliance to Preserve the Sanctity of Marriage as Established by God” — includes representatives from the Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus, the National Organization for Marriage and a number of Hispanic and Latino church groups.
Organizers said the alliance’s purpose is to “safeguard God’s covenant and definition of marriage.” It does not seek to judge or condemn gay, lesbian, or transgender individuals. -Providence Journal
