Maggie to Values Voters: "This Cause is Not Only Just, But, In the End, Will Prevail"


This weekend NOM co-founder Maggie Gallagher was part of a panel on defending marriage at the Values Voter Summit. Michelle Bauman of EWTN reports:

Leaders of organizations dedicated to preventing the redefinition of marriage said in an Oct. 8 panel that the movement to support marriage should not give up hope.

“This cause is not only just, but, in the end, will prevail,” said Maggie Gallagher, co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage.

Gallagher presented “The Case for Hope on Marriage” as part of a panel at the Values Voter Summit at the Omni Shoreham hotel in Washington.

The panel, entitled “Straight Talk on ‘Gay Marriage,’” was moderated by Tom McClusky, vice president for government affairs at the Family Research Council.

Gallagher explained that those committed to defending marriage have heard over and over again that they cannot win the battle.

However, she said, “a culture war is like any other war,” in the sense that victory comes “not when one side is annihilated, but when it gives up its wish to fight.”

Therefore, she explained, the war to defend marriage will never end as long as its supporters never lose hope.
