“Gay activists are wrong to claim the mantle of the civil rights movement in their push to redefine marriage for all — the most important civil right related to marriage is the right of every child to a mother and father.” — Rev. Bill Owens, founder and president, CAAP —
Washington, D.C. — Reverend Bill Owens, founder and president of the Coalition of African American Pastors, USA (CAAP), an active member of the civil rights movement in Nashville, Tenn., in the 1950’s and 1960’s, and Brian Brown, President of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), have announced they will unite to lead the March for Marriage, to be held in Washington, D.C. on March 26, the same day the U.S. Supreme Court begins oral arguments in the Proposition 8 and Defense of Marriage Act cases.
“Gay activists are wrong to claim the mantle of the civil rights movement in their push to redefine marriage for all — the most important civil right related to marriage is the right of every child to a mother and father,” said Rev. Owens. “We plan to rally at the National Mall and march to the Supreme Court to stand up for the true civil rights movement and against these new efforts to claim an unthinkable right — the ‘right’ to redefine marriage for everyone.”
Brian Brown, president of NOM, added: “Our march will reflect the unity and diversity of the pro-marriage movement. Men and women of every walk of life, every color and creed have professed from time immemorial that to make a marriage, you need a man and a woman.”
Rev. Owens continued: “I marched in the civil rights movement, and I did not walk a single step for gay marriage when I marched for civil rights. I will march again and the Coalition of African American pastors will march to honor the civil rights movement and to honor the sacred institution of marriage.”
Why the March for Marriage?
On March 26th the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the Perry case, which will determine if Proposition 8–the citizens initiative approved by the people of California in 2008 to protect marriage–is constitutional or not More importantly, the question of same sex “marriage” and the right of Americans to protect marriage will be decided. It is imperative that political leaders, the media, and the culture see that we care about protecting marriage enough to stand up and march for it.
