Boston's rally in defense of marriage

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Feb 09, 2004

I attended the rally yesterday afternoon on Boston Common to defend marriage and to demand the state government allow the citizens to vote on it, rather than have it imposed from above by unelected judges. I've posted my own reflections and some photos on my web site. I have a feeling that you'll get a slightly different point of view from the mainstream media.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I was pleased with the "let us vote" strategy. What else are we going to do to do - get everyone to say, hey, you know what - this stuff is a sin! - so let's everyone just repent and follow the Church's teaching, including the justices, and Bob and Bernie too! Tra la! (Of course, that's what we want to happen; with prayer, we hope for it to happen - someday - but does anyone think that's how homosexual marriage will be stopped, right now??? Be wise as serpents, and guileless as doves.
