I Marched For The Civil Rights Movement And Not Gay Marriage

By Staff

Gay rights advocates have hijacked the Civil Rights Movement in their cause to redefine the sanctity of the institution of marriage between a man and women, says Rev. William Owens, the founder of the Coalition of African American Pastors. The coalition is “a grass-roots movement of Christians who believe in traditional family values such as supporting the role on religion in American public life by protecting the unborn, and defending the sacred institution of marriage.”

The March for Marriage is an organized march to defend “traditional” marriage that will occur on March 26 in Washington, D.C. as oral arguments on two cases challenging the legality of Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act begin before the U.S. Supreme Court. Regardless of the outcome, these cases are expected to be landmark on the issue of gay marriage. The National Organization for Marriage is sponsoring the march alongside several other organizations such as the Family Research Council, the American Principles Project, Catholic Family and Human Rights, and the Reverend’s Coalition of African American Pastors.

Rev. Owens opined, “We plan to rally at the National Mall and march to the Supreme Court to stand up for the true civil rights movement and against these new efforts to claim an unthinkable right – the ‘right’ to redefine marriage for everyone. I will march again and the Coalition of African American pastors will march to honor the civil rights movement and to honor the sacred institution of marriage.” The Reverend was also a participant in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s in Nashville, Tennessee. “I marched in the civil rights movement, and I did not walk a single step for gay marriage when I marched for civil rights,” Owens stated.
