Catholic Group Launches 'Traditional Marriage Crusade' in Three States

by Staff
July 16, 2009

SPRING GROVE, Penn., ( -- The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) has launched a pro-traditional marriage crusade in three states: New York, Maine and Rhode Island.

Starting today, TFP volunteers, divided into three contingents, called Saint Joseph Caravans, will tour major cities rallying support for traditional marriage.

The Catholic group's handout offers "Ten reasons why homosexual 'marriage' is harmful and must be opposed," and calls on Americans to firmly and peacefully oppose the advance of the homosexual movement.

"Like counterfeit currency, homosexual 'marriage' is not true marriage. It is morally wrong, sinful, offensive to God and a violation of natural law," said TFP spokesman John Ritchie. "To claim that marriage can be anything other than the union of one man and one woman is a flat denial of reality," he continued.

This summer, the state of Massachusetts is suing the United States, challenging the constitutionality of part of the Defense of Marriage Act. The challenge caused concern among pro-family advocates who believe the effort is one more step in the process to undermine the traditional family, the basic cell of society, and to destroy the innocence of our children and grandchildren.

"Parents don't want their children in grade school to be told that the homosexual lifestyle is fine, but that's already happening," said Ritchie. "It's part of the homosexual movement's concerted effort to force the sexual revolution into the mainstream culture and banish God and His law from the public square."

Thirty states have constitutional amendments protecting traditional marriage and forty one states have laws banning same-sex "marriage."
