Rally in defense of traditional marriage set for July 1

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 12:01 am

Shepherds United, the local clergy group of nearly 140 pastors centered around life, marriage and religious liberty, will hold a rally in defense of traditional marriage at noon July 1 on the Allen County Courthouse lawn. The rally is expected to be only days after the U.S. Supreme Court rules on two marriage cases.

The rally will feature local clergy members speaking on the Biblical, societal and religious liberty implications of governmental attempts to redefine marriage as well as reaction to any Supreme Court decision on the marriage cases.

"Regardless of the court's decision, we as shepherds in the 'City of Churches' are conscience-bound to proclaim marriage as the union of one man and one woman," stated the Rev. Peter Scaer, foundational member of Shepherds United.

The rally is open to the public and is expected to last less than one hour. More details are available at www.shepherdsunited.org.
