Black Churches Holding Pro-Marriage Vigils in Maryland


The Christian Post:

A group of several black congregations will be holding a vigil against same-sex marriage in Maryland, a state that will be holding a referendum on the issue in November.

Organized by the National Black Church Initiative, the vigil will take place in Baltimore on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. The Rev. Anthony Evans, president of NBCI, told The Christian Post that this vigil was the first of many to be held throughout the state leading up to the November election.

"We are going to hold a series of vigils all across Maryland up until the election. We are determined to gather an army of Christians who believe that biblical marriage is between one man and one woman," said Evans.

"And we are going to defeat same-sex marriage and we are going to continue to defeat that around the country."

Evans explained that NBCI had the support of over a hundred churches in Maryland as well as "the commitment of over 8,000 volunteers."
