Seven buses full of Chinese-Americans flocked to the nation's capitol Washington D.C. to join the March for Marriage rally against same-sex marriage.
As the Supreme Court hears oral arguments on Proposition 8 - a California ban on same-sex marriage - and Defense of Marriage Act, thousands from both sides demonstrated and marched Tuesday at the National Mall and outside the Supreme Court building.
New York’s Chinese ministerial fellowship chairman Rev. Mudao Xiao urged the Chinese churches to continue to pray for the defense of traditional marriage.
New York's Chinese ministerial fellowship chairman Rev. Mudao Xiao, who just returned from attending the rally in Washington, emailed Chinese churches in the Greater Tri-state area a report of what he heard and saw.
While the media is inundated with pro-gay messages, over 350 Chinese Christians from New York traveled to Washington D.C. on March 26 to voice their opposition against same-sex marriage for the welfare of their future generations.
They joined the believers of other ethnicities in the March. The believers prayed for United States and marched in support for the biblical definition of marriage as between one man and one woman as husband and wife.
Despite the chilly weather, the participants’ spirits were high. The oldest Chinese participant aged in the eighties, while the youngest was less than two years old. Xiao said he witnessed the show of courage and determination of the Chinese churches in defending traditional marriage and family values.
Xiao thanked the New York Chinese churches on behalf of the New York Chinese ministerial fellowship. He also thanked Rev. Timothy Chiu for organizing this rally.
Xiao, senior pastor of New York Harvest Bread of Life Church, said the Washington March for Marriage event revealed that unity is strength. He asked believers to continue to pray for the ongoing court debates, so that the definition of traditional marriage can be upheld and that the evil ones can be tied up.
