March 10, 2004

Fifteen national and local organizations have joined together to form the “Coalition for Marriage” in an effort to deny same-sex couples marriage rights.

The coalition’s leading organizations use extremist, incendiary rhetoric:

  • Concerned Women for America called a newly married gay Canadian couple “the latest pair of ‘domestic terrorists.’”
  • Focus on the Family says that homosexuality is “treatable and preventable.”

MassEquality, a group of local and national organizations, is working to preserve marriage rights in Massachusetts.
