March for Marriage to Supreme Court: Don’t Hand Us Another Roe

National Organization for Marriage

John Burger - published on 06/17/14 - updated on 06/08/17

What’s the March for Marriage looking like? What are you hoping will come out of it?

I don’t know what the numbers will end up being. We’ll clearly have over 10,000 people there, maybe more. It’s hard to judge. We’ll see. Again, to look back at the pro-life movement, the first March for life, you were looking at 10,000 to 15,000 people there and it grew to what it is today. We’re in the long haul if we get 15,000 people or we get 50,000 people. We’re going to be ecstatic because it shows that people are still willing to stand up for the truth about marriage.

I’m also very happy about the speakers who will be there: Gov. [Mike] Huckabee, Sen. [Rick] Santorum, Archbishop Cordileone, the African-American Church: Bishop Harry Jackson, Bishop Felton Smith of the Church of God in Christ. State Sen. Ruben Diaz, a Democrat from New York, is going to speak.

So I think the march is going to highlight the diversity of the movement to protect marriage—people from different walks of life, different political parties, different religions, different ethnic backgrounds, all coming together to proclaim the truth about marriage.
