In a follow-up to this Journalista Chronicle post about the Public Advocate group who planned to rally and hand out pro-marriage buttons on Tuesday at the inauguration, here’s how it went:
“Based on our video survey takers and enthusiastic support demonstrated at today’s Presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C. it is clear that most of the millions of citizens turning out today at the Inauguration of Barack Obama support traditional marriage and want a federal marriage protection amendment signed into law”, said Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.
Over 657 citizens from 27 states attending gave video testimony and 37,357 wore buttons, stickers or t-shirts that stated “Preserve Traditional Marriage”.
12, 373 people refused our offer to support marriage openly which shows a big majority for supporting tradtional marriage today.
I’ll keep checking to see if they post any of the video interviews. All in all, I’d say it was a huge success. I’m happy to see that so many Americans are in support of protecting marriage.
