Pa. conservative group organizes 'Pray-In' to oppose same-sex marriage

Mike McMonagle, president of the Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania, has announced his group will hold a Pro-Marriage Pray-In to Occur at the Montgomery County Register of Wills Office in Norristown, Pa., on Friday, July 26, 2013 at Noon. Montgomery County made national headlines on Wednesday when the Democratic Register of Wills, D. Bruce Hanes, backed by the two Democrats on the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners, decided to defy state law by issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The following press release was issued by Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania:
    We urge the Register of Wills, Bruce Hanes, to stop issuing marriage licenses to homosexual couples. We urge Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman to charge Bruce Hanes for his violation of state law by issuing marriage licenses to homosexual couples.We urge Governor Corbett to cease his timid public responses and zealously defend Pa's marriage law.
The statement below: explains our position and the reasons for our actions:
    Pennsylvania should continue the legal definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman because the primary purpose of civil marriage is to unite children with their mother and father. Such an arrangement best ensures the welfare of future Americans and advances the purposes of civil government.    
    "Marriage Equality," which is the slogan of the "homosexual marriage" supporters, is  oxymoronic, i.e. self-contradictory.  "Homosexual marriage" is inherently unequal to the union of one man and one woman because homosexual relationships are incapable of producing children.
    Furthermore, the drive for homosexual marriage is a continuation of the war on children.  This war began by preventing the conception of children by contraception and sterilization, killing children conceived but not yet born by abortion and now intentionally denying born children a mother and a father through "same sex marriage."
    Numerous recent actions by "homosexual marriage" supporters indicate that they are also willing to violate existing laws and trample on the freedom of religion, speech and assembly of other Americans to achieve their goal.  Pro-life Pennsylvanians need to protect Pa's marriage law and oppose the ongoing war on children with greatly increased clarity and zeal.
