The Stand and Pray for Marriage rally was a huge success attracting hundreds of pro traditional marriage and family supporters to the State Capitol grounds and the Federal Court building. Bus loads of supporters lined the sidewalks along both Bank and Main Streets. Special guest speakers spoke to the issue of one man – one woman marriage to much applause of the hundreds gathered in the shade of the trees on the lawn at the Bell Tower on the grounds of the Virginia State Capitol.

Our elected leaders, our courts, and our government have all become accomplices to the sin of homosexuality.  Opinions don’t matter on this issue.  Human sexuality is a moral issue – not a legal issue. 

All morality is based on God’s law, not man’s law.  God’s law was, is, and forever will be.
