Traditional marriage supporters to rally at Alabama Capitol, speak against judicial overreach
MONTGOMERY, Ala — Sanctity of Marriage Alabama, a group advocating for the definition of marriage to remain as a union between one man and one woman, is set to gather with state leaders, pastors and other individuals in front of the Alabama Capitol Building for an “Alabama for Marriage Rally” on Saturday, June 6th from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.
State Representative Will Ainsworth (R-Guntersville), Executive Director at the Alabama Citizens Action Program (ALCAP) Dr. Joe Godfrey, Wife of Chief Justice Roy Moore, Mrs. Kayla Moore, and Congressman Gary Palmer (R-AL6) are a few of the leaders expected to participate in the event.
“Regardless of whether the Supreme Court makes a right or wrong decision in June, real love for Christ and our neighbor compels Christians to stand on God’s Word for the natural, biblical, traditional and moral definition of marriage between one man and one woman,” Sanctity of Marriage Alabama stated in a press release.
The group says they organized the event for Christians to come together and promote marriage between one man and one woman, as well as to encourage state leaders to stand up against judicial overreach.
“We want to encourage Alabama and the nation to stand for the God-ordained institution of marriage and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The church must lead the way in repentance and obedience to God’s Word,” said group spokesman Tom Ford.
This event comes just weeks after a bill seeking to “get the state out of the marriage business” began making its way through the Alabama legislature, and not long before the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to make a final ruling on the constitutionality of state-level gay marriage bans.
