Via email from hate group leader Brian Brown:
Joe — I’ve got some very exciting and important news: We have just confirmed with the authorities that the 2017 March for Marriage has been officially scheduled for Saturday, June 17th in Washington, DC!
The March for Marriage is an important event to keep the fight to restore marriage in the public eye. It was in 2015 when the US Supreme Court issued their illegitimate, anti-constitutional ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges imposing gay “marriage” on the nation and unleashing a flood of consequences for the overwhelming majority of Americans who continue to revere marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
NOM has pledged that we will never rest until this illegal, unjust ruling is reversed. With the election of Donald Trump, and several vacancies on the Supreme Court expected during his term, we have a real chance to reverse this ruling in the short-term.
The appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch is a great first step. Now we likely need just one justice from the majority ruling in Obergefell to retire and we could be in a position to reverse that ruling. Rumors are flying that such a retirement could occur as early as this summer.
This year’s March for Marriage is being co-sponsored by Freedom’s Journal Institute for the Study of Faith and Public Policy. The organization’s aim is to create a “paradigm shift” in the way people, in general, and the African American populace, in particular, view matters of faith, race and public policy. They will be holding a major meeting in Washington, DC corresponding with the March for Marriage and we are looking forward to them joining with us.
