The NOM (National Organization For Marriage) Marriage Tour 2010: One Man, One Woman is coming to Minnesota!
Mark your calendar now. The NOM Marriage Tour will be in Minnesota for three days next week, starting Wednesday (7/28) in St. Paul, Thursday (7/29) in St. Cloud, and Friday (7/30) in Rochester. Please make an effort to join us at one of the three rallies!
This year is a pivotal year for the future of marriage in Minnesota. Already, the Defense of Marriage Act is under attack in the courts, several candidates for governor have announced their support for same-sex marriage, and if we don’t stand up today, it could soon be too late.
They also plan rallies in St. Cloud and Rochester on the 29th and the 30th. Saint Cloud's homosexual rally will take place at Wilson Park from 7pm-8:30pm on Thursday, July 29. Rochester will also hold a rally on the next day, but the details have not been finalized
It would be good if as many of us as possible could attend these Minnesota rallies.
Joining me in speaking at all three events will be Chuck Darrell, Communications Director for the Minnesota Family Council. Chuck has been heavily involved in the effort to pass a constitutional amendment that would protect marriage in Minnesota, and will share some of the latest developments in that effort. The three events will also bring together pastors and other local leaders who will urge attendees to make a difference for marriage, starting in your own communities. Together, we will outline the urgency of the threat to marriage in Minnesota this year, and the potential impact we will have if we join together and make our voices heard.
A good turnout is important at each of these events, as the media has begun paying close attention to the Summer for Marriage Tour stops. Please contact your friends and neighbors, urging them to join you at one of these Minnesota rallies. Use Facebook or other social networks to spread the word. You can even RSVP online (click here), or just show up at noon to stand for marriage!
If at all possible, I hope you’ll take a long lunch hour and join us in St. Paul, St. Cloud, or Rochester next week. Come on out for an inspiring hour, hearing from terrific speakers, meeting up with old friends from marriage battles of years past. . . . and making some new friends as well!
