Pro-marriage Hispanics to rally at Democratic National Convention

.- Key Latino leaders will rally at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Denver later this year in support of a national marriage amendment and marriage-friendly policy.

The event, organized by the Alliance for Marriage, will take place near the Colorado Convention Center where the DNC will hold its meeting.  The Alliance for Marriage will also conduct a public relations campaign, including paid advertisements, to publicize the issue and the event.

Organizers claim that the Colorado political landscape has been transformed from “the very heart of America’s pro-marriage and pro-family movement” into a “home front for radical activists.” As an example of this upheaval the Latino leaders singled out Colorado billionaire and former software magnate Tim Gill, who has funded homosexual activist causes.

The Alliance for Marriage plans to mobilize the Hispanic vote to bring about renewal “within both national political parties, but especially the Democrat party”. Citing the influence of millionaire activists, the organizers see Latino support for the family as the “only chance of pushing back the forces of Gill and others.”

“For far too long the votes of Latinos have been taken for granted,” said Rev. Sam Rodriguez, Jr., President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and Advisory Board Member of the Alliance for Marriage Foundation.  “As our numbers grow, our influence is growing, and it is time for leaders of both parties to put protecting marriage and strong family values at the center of their agenda.  Candidates like to tout ‘family values’ on the stump, but then toss our values aside when they get to Washington.  We’re not going to tolerate that any more.”

Final details will be made public in the weeks leading up to the convention.
