YOUR CATHOLIC VOICE RALLIES CATHOLICS TO SUPPORT MARRIAGE / BISHOPS IN MASSACHUSETTS
2/5/2004 - 21:00 PST
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BOSTON, Mass. --- Working with the Massachusetts Catholic Conference of Bishops and other groups, Your Catholic Voice is sponsoring a rally in support of the Marriage Affirmation and Protection Amendment at 2 PM on Sunday, February 8. It will be in front of the State House in Boston.

“While the Catholic Church is opposed to any form of discrimination, unfortunately, your Church and your family are under attack!” Your Catholic Voice President Ray Flynn told Catholics in Massachusetts and across the country.

“We support our four Massachusetts Catholic Bishops, who have courageously decided to fight the secularists and those in state government who see the recent decision by four unelected members of the Supreme Judicial Court as an opportunity to destroy the definition of marriage and the family.

“Our laws must support stable marriages with a mother and a father. This issue is about the welfare of children and our society.”

He told Massachusetts Catholics, “If you have never contacted your legislator before, this is the time to do it. If you have never participated in a public rally before, this is an historic time to act and bring your family. What better example can we give our children than to make a public statement supporting stable marriages and families with a mother and a father?”

Ambassador Flynn is the national president of Your Catholic Voice, former U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican from 1993 to 1997 and former mayor of Boston.

I WAS THERE ON THE 8TH--I AM TIRED OF PEOPLE CALLING ME HATEFUL BECAUSE I DISAGREE WITH THEIR OPINION. I HATE NOBODY. I JUST WANT THE SYSTEM TO WORK THE WAY IT IS SUPPOSED TO.WE HAVE A SEPERATION OF POWERS FOR A REASON.-MAJORITY RULES, NOT, THE MINORITY. IF IT IS PUT ON THE BALLOT & GAY MARRIAGE WINS--THEN THE MAJORITY WILL RULE A MARRIAGE IS 1 MAN & 1 WOMAN AS IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN
