Group Starts 'Traditional Marriage Crusade' in California

HANOVER, Penn., Sept. 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) has just launched a pro-traditional marriage campaign in California. Starting on September 1, TFP volunteers will tour major cities and college campuses rallying support for traditional marriage.

The Catholic group's handout offers "Ten reasons why homosexual 'marriage' is harmful and must be opposed," and calls on Californians to firmly and peacefully oppose the advance of the homosexual movement.

"Like counterfeit currency, homosexual 'marriage' is not true marriage. It is morally wrong, sinful, offensive to God and a violation of natural law," said TFP spokesman John Ritchie. "To claim that marriage can be anything other than the union of one man and one woman is a flat denial of reality," he continued.

In June, the California Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex "marriage." The ruling caused great concerns among pro-family advocates who believe the decision will undermine the family unit, harm the moral integrity of our nation and jeopardize the innocence of our children.

"Parents don't want their children in grade school to be told that the homosexual lifestyle is fine, but that's already happening," said Ritchie. "It's part of the homosexual movement's concerted effort to force the sexual revolution into the mainstream culture and banish God and His law from the public square."

Twenty seven states have constitutional amendments protecting traditional marriage and forty one states have laws banning same-sex "marriage."
