Today we campaigned for traditional marriage at the Cal Expo in Sacramento. It was the busiest day of the fair.
We made several “Honk for Traditional Marriage” signs and displayed them at the fair entrance. Honks of all types filled the air.
The issue of same-sex “marriage” has divided the state down the middle. Even within the same vehicle, we got both thumbs up and thumbs down. Very few people are undecided or unsure where they stand.
But don’t expect civility from same-sex advocates. One woman approached a TFP volunteer and bluntly stated: “You should be killed for your opinion on marriage. I’m not joking you should all be shot.” A few other passing cars attempted to inflict harm.
A moving car launched a full coke can at Mr. Thomas Schneider and another car containing a group of screaming girls threw a cup of ice coffee at him as well. Fortunately, both flying objects missed our dedicated volunteers. Saint Joseph, our caravan patron, is indeed protecting us.
We’ve found Protestants who agree wholeheartedly with the Catholic Church’s teaching against homosexuality. A preacher we met at the fair who had a pro-traditional marriage booth was happy to meet us and appreciated the TFP flier: “This flier is the best flier on the subject I’ve seen yet.”
He added: “Catholics have a term called the Church militant. We (Protestants) need something like that too.”
A city bus driver came and said: “I need another stack of fliers because I gave out the last one I had.” Apparently, he made sure each passenger on his bus received a flier.
I want to thank all of you who are praying for us. We will need your continued prayers.
Saint Joseph, pray for us!
