The March For Marriage 2014 took place in Washington D.C. yesterday and featured conservative speakers, such as Fox News host Mike Huckabee who used Martin Luther King Jr.'s writings against segregation to attack gay marriage.
In addition to Huckabee, RightWingWatch.org notes that Sam Rohrer, of the American Pastors Network, claimed that gay marriage would lead to “tyranny” and Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) called on "real" men to oppose gay marriage (videos below).
Opposing gay marriage was also on the minds of many of the 2,000+ attendees, some of whom were interviewed by ThinkProgress.org (video below).
Most of the people interviewed cited religion as their basis for their opposition to gay marriage:
The reason I came here was because I was told by my church ministry to come out here and support what we believe in, which is a man and a woman to get married.
Marriage is a covenant between a man a woman and God and we cannot change what the Bible defines.
I'm out here to support marriage between one man and one woman because I believe God created it that way and it should be that way because... it's the right thing to do.
I believe in marriage between a man and a woman because that's how God created the world, Adam and Eve.
It's against our religion, so far our children to be taught "this is normal and you are wrong," that is wrong.
