On Monday, March 29th, Bellevue Baptist Church is hosting a "Stand for the Family" rally to promote what they call "traditional families." I can only assume they mean "heterosexual families" considering that the rally's guest speaker is Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, a well-known foe of marriage equality.
In protest, the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (MGLCC) has organized a counter-rally billed as "Stand for ALL Families: A Rally to Celebrate and Promote Every Family" at Neshoba Unitarian Universalist Church (7350 Raleigh-Lagrange Rd.) on Monday, March 29th from 6 to 8 p.m.
Says MGLCC director Will Batts: "MGLCC stands for all types of families because we value the unconditional love that builds those relationships. Many of the kids we assist have been hurt by traditional families that see only rigid, limited ways of expressing love.”
