Coalition Only Invites Citizens Who Disagree with Radical Attempts to Redefine Marriage to Rally this Saturday
Contact: Len Deo, 973-781-1414; Debbie Hamilton, 215-815-7716
MAYS LANDING, N.J., June 1 /Christian Newswire/ -- A local marriage rally opposing efforts by radical fringe groups such as polygamists and polyamorists, together with homosexuals, to redefine marriage is taking place on June 2 in Mays Landing, NJ from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon next to the Atlantic County Court House. Residents of Mays Landing and surrounding communities in New Jersey who oppose these group's efforts are invited to attend. Security will be present although no fringe groups were invited to attend this particular rally but normally do attend to protest.
As evidenced by some of the most progressive and intelligent scholars on America's law campuses, attempts by homosexual activists to redefine marriage are leading the crusade for other special interest groups who believe the definition of marriage should be subject to change with current trends and sympathies, as well. Len Deo, president of the New Jersey Family Policy Council, which is associated with James Dobson's Focus on the Family, stated that, "Growing movements by polyamorists and polygamists to further redefine marriage and family are finding momentum as they follow the efforts of homosexual activists, but polls and research show that since the majority of Americans will only accept marriage between one man and one woman, these groups' efforts will ultimately be deemed useless."
Homosexual activists continue to work incrementally toward a complete eradication of traditional marriage law in New Jersey. Currently, civil unions are now the law in New Jersey, but same-sex "marriage" advocates have promised to move legislation in the next two years that will upgrade civil unions to full "marriage." If successful, such changes will by necessity lead to broader changes, as well, with inclusions of polyamory and polygamy not far behind.
The day's events will include marriage presentations from legislators and churches in the area: Assemblyman Mike Doherty, who co-sponsored the bill for the constitutional amendment, and Pastor Steve Mears, plus the New Jersey Pastors Association, Knights of Columbus and the New Jersey Family Policy Council.
Details of the activities of the last year and the coming year and an update on the results of the New Jersey Statewide Official Clergy Petition drive will also be presented. For more information visit www.njfpc.org or call 1-800-FAMILY-1.
