Catholic group opposing marriage amendment to rally in Loring Park

Catholics for Marriage Equality-Minnesota will hold a rally to oppose the Marriage Amendment Wednesday night in Minneapolis’ Loring Park.

While the Catholic Church hierarchy has supported passage of the amendment, this group of Catholics wants to defeat the amendment because they say it “would limit the freedom to marry for committed, same-sex couples in Minnesota.”

The rally is at 7 p.m. in the downtown park.

The marriage amendment will be on the statewide Nov. 6 ballot. If approved by a majority of those voting, it would amend the state Constitution to say that marriage can only be a union of one man and one woman.

State law already forbids gay marriage.
