Marriage rally to be held at state Capitol
Those who support traditional marriage are urged to attend a rally set for noon-1 p.m. Jan. 25 at the state Capitol in Denver.
In preparation for contentious hearings on the Colorado Civil Unions Act this legislative session, the Colorado Catholic Conference organized a “Protect and Support Marriage Rally” on the west steps of the Capitol at 200 E. Colfax Ave. in Denver.
“We want the rally to be a witness of the importance of marriage and let legislators know that there are constituents in the community who feel strongly about protecting marriage,” said Jenny Kraska, director of the conference, the public policy arm of the Catholic Church in Colorado.
The legislation contradicts the voter-approved Amendment 43, which defines marriage as between one man and one woman. It also opposes Referendum I, the equivalent to civil unions, which voters rejected in 2006.
All are invited to bring friends, fellow parishioners and family to pray and show their support for traditional marriage—the cornerstone of society—at this crucial time.
