March for Marriage to protest Obergefell decision
June 22, 2016
The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) is holding a March for Marriage on June 25 to commemorate the anniversary of Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court decision that struck down state laws that recognized marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
Participants will gather near the Capitol and march to the Supreme Court building “to protest the illegitimate redefining of marriage in our nation's laws,” according to NOM.
“We’re also protesting President Obama's illegal and outrageous attempt to redefine gender,” NOM said in a statement. “And we’re marching to demand that Congress enact laws to protect supporters of marriage from discrimination and persecution by the government.”
Marriage Unique for a Reason, an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, called upon Catholics to “consider joining the March for Marriage 2016 to witness to the continued importance of authentic marriage.”
