Today the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) along with local group NC4Marriage will host a rally at the state capital. The “Summer for Marriage Tour 2010: One Man One Woman Rally” hopes to remind the NC General Assembly that North Carolinians support a state amendment declaring marriage as between one man and one woman. The rally is open to the public and will begin today at noon. Participants will hear from Brian Brown, president of NOM, Rev. Olden Thornton, pastor of the Raleigh International Church, Mary Frances Forrester, head of the NC chapter of Concerned Women for America and wife of N.C. Sen. James Forrester who has introduced a state marriage amendment bill for the past seven years, Rev. Mark Creech, executive director of the Christian Action League of North Carolina, and Bill Brooks, president and executive director of the North Carolina Family Policy Council and NC4Marriage.
