Support for God's Marriage Strong, Catholic Group Finds After Three State Tour

by Staff
August 4, 2009

HANOVER, Penn., (christiansunite.com) -- The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) has concluded a successful 16-day tour for traditional marriage in New York, Maine and Rhode Island.

TFP volunteers distributed pro-marriage leaflets, talked with people on the street, and carried out high profile campaigns at busy intersections and in front of malls.

The public's support was clear as expressed by the waves of people who honked their horns when driving by the group's roadside demonstrations after reading the huge "HONK for traditional marriage" signs. In some places, so many people honked that the intersection literally turned into a "honk orchestra."

People would say: "God bless you! Thank you for this. You made my day," said Norman Fulkerson, leader of the Catholic group's New York contingent. "But sometimes people were moved and said things like: 'God will give you a big reward for this,' or 'it takes a lot of courage to do what you're doing' or even 'the government is taking away our rights. Thank you for what you are doing; we are all in this together.'"

"We found strong support for traditional marriage. There were a few outbursts from angry pro- homosexual individuals. But most people cheered us on."

The group's findings from direct contact with the public in the streets fits with data from CBS/New York Times, USAToday/Gallup and the Pew Foundation polls that say support for same-sex "marriage" is sliding nationwide.
