Rally Against Radical Right

The Family Research Council will be holding their gay bashing event, "Liberty Sunday" on Sunday, October 15th at Tremont Temple. This event will include a national broadcast from Boston to homes all across America.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, had this to say about Massachusetts:
"This is the source of the problem...this is the origin of the immediate threat of same-sex marriage to the nation.”

In the anti-gay promotion video for the event, Perkins and a few bay state conservatives take aim at the LGBT community. They don't just want to end same-sex marriage, they want to destroy our community and send us all back into the closet.

Mitt Romney's wife will be speaking at the event. She will be introducing a video featuring him and other local politicians talking about “how same-sex marriage and how the homosexual agenda has impacted religious liberties in Massachusetts and around the country”.

QueerToday is reporting that the LGBT community and allies will be holding a peaceful prayer vigil and rally across the street from the Tremont Temple "Liberty Sunday" event. Senator Jarrett Barrios will join local clergy, activists, and community members at the event.

The event is being organized by the Religious Coalition for Freedom to Marry and the Arlington Street Church's Social Action Committee. There will be a few speakers to rally the crowd outside.

Boston has a long history of standing up against oppression. We must continue that tradition by attending the rally this Sunday. Be there at 6:30pm and bring your friends. Let's show the radical right how we do it in Massachusetts.

Great job getting the word out Chris. You can see this call to action on KTN and I see QueerToday posted it as well as my site. This is what our community needs, more leadership and more unity.
