The United States Conference of
Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is encouraging Catholics to support this
weekend's march against marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples.
The National Organization for
Marriage's (NOM) March for Marriage will take place Saturday, June
25, the day before the one year anniversary of Obergefell v.
Hodges, the Supreme Court case that found that gay couples have a
constitutional right to marry.
In a post on its Marriage
Unique for a Reason website, the bishops called the high court's
ruling “erroneous and unjust.”
“The event is meant to highlight the
importance of the unique meaning of marriage to society and the
importance of mothers and fathers for children,” the bishops wrote.
“Please consider joining the March
for Marriage 2016 to witness to the continued importance of authentic
marriage!” they added.
This year's march will wind its way
from the reflecting pool to the Supreme Court.
