FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Two rallies supporting opposing views of marriage
have drawn hundreds of people to the lawn of the Allen County Courthouse
in Fort Wayne.
The Stand Up for Marriage Rally sponsored by several ministers Monday
promoted marriage from a biblical perspective and as a foundation of
culture and the role marriage plays in religious liberty.
Pastor Wendell Brane of Trinity Evangelical Church stood with his wife,
Terry, at his side and said, "This is what a biblical marriage looks like:
One man, one wife," as supporters cheered.
The Journal Gazette reports police estimated about 400 people gathered for
the ministers' rally while 200 others stood with rainbow flags and signs
promoting equality in marriage.
The rally came days after the U.S. Supreme Court's decision striking down
the Defense of Marriage Act.
