US bishops affirm support for marriage amendment

.- The Alliance for Marriage is bolstered by the U.S. bishops’ strong endorsement of the group’s Marriage Protection Amendment, said the group in a press release yesterday.

The Alliance for Marriage introduced their marriage amendment with bi-partisan sponsorship in two successive sessions of Congress. The Senate vote on the amendment is pending in June.

"Most Americans believe that gays and lesbians have a right to live as they choose. But they don't believe they have a right to redefine marriage for our entire society," said Matt Daniels, president of the Alliance for Marriage.

"AFM drafted the Marriage Protection Amendment because Americans want our laws to send a positive message to children about marriage, family and their future," he explained in a press release.

"The constitutional problem created by almost a decade of activist lawsuits to destroy our marriage laws demands a constitutional fix," he continued.

The Alliance for Marriage is a wide-reaching multicultural coalition. Its Board of Advisors includes civil rights and religious leaders, and national legal experts.
