SPRING GROVE, PA (JULY 27, 2009) – The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) is promoting traditional marriage on the streets of New York, Maine and Rhode Island and finding how deeply Americans cherish God’s marriage – the union of one man and one woman.
TFP volunteers have been standing on busy street corners holding HONK signs, which are large signs with a message printed in bold and colorful letters:
HONK for traditional marriage = 1 man + 1 woman.
The public enjoys the pro-family group’s HONK signs.
“People love to honk their horn for marriage. It’s like they feel liberated from all the homosexual propaganda being forced on them,” said Norman Fulkerson, TFP leader with the group campaigning in upstate New York.
Fulkerson continued: “The opposition is forced to hear the barrage of honking horns. Their insults and cursing get drowned out in the noise of the honks.”
Even pedestrians join the honking by simulating the movement of pressing a car’s horn and making a loud honk sound.
“People are tired of hearing all the propaganda for same-sex ‘marriage’,” said Richard Lyon, TFP volunteer campaigning in Rhode Island. “I’m finding that people don’t want their children educated in the homosexual lifestyle. They want the traditional family. And they’re happy to see us saying this in public.”
The Catholic group also hands out a flyer titled “Ten reasons why homosexual ‘marriage’ is harmful and must be opposed,” and calls on Americans to firmly and peacefully oppose the advance of the homosexual movement.
Recent surveys show that support for same-sex “marriage” is declining in the United States.
