On March 27, the Supreme Court will begin hearing oral argument on the two marriage equality cases. The Family Research Council is asking its followers to show up for a million bigot march on the National Mall, presumably to influence the court in some way.
If President Obama is considering weighing in on the Supreme Court marriage cases–then you should too! Next month, during two of the most important trials of the century, the National Organization for Marriage is urging America to rally for marriage at a once-in-a-lifetime March on the National Mall. Pro-family groups like FRC, churches, state activists, and cultural leaders are all converging on Washington to show the world that we care about protecting marriage and want to stand up and fight for it. The event kicks off Tuesday morning, March 26, as nine Supreme Court justices hear oral arguments on two cases that could change the course of history–and our nation–forever.
“To me,” ABC News’s Matthew Dowd has said, “the consensus has already emerged on this issue. It’s just a question of… is the Supreme Court going to catch up, or get ahead of it, or put a block in the path of it?” This is a chance to prove that the only consensus on marriage is the belief that one man and one woman define it. You can help us bring that message to the steps of the Supreme Court by standing with men and women from all 50 states who believe in marriage, religious liberty, and the right of every child to have a mom and a dad.
Uh, no. It doesn’t matter how many people you have show up to march, it will not prove that you’re in the majority on this issue. The polls of all Americans, not just the ones who will show up in Washington to protest something that does not affect them in any way at all, show that a majority now supports marriage equality.
