Protest to target Catholic church's financial support of Proposal 2

LGBT activist and former Coalition for a Fair Michigan employee Tom Zerafa is calling for "a peaceful demonstration of solidarity supporting families of the LGBT community" on Sunday, Nov. 21, 2004.
The 11:45 a.m. demonstration, to be held in front of Blessed Sacrament Cathedral, has been called to protest the Archdiocese of Detroit's financial support of Proposal 2, the so-called "marriage amendment" which has banned equal marriage rights, civil unions and domestic partnerships in Michigan's Constitution.
The passage of Proposal 2 "was due in large part through the financial support of Cardinal Adam Maida, Archbishop of Detroit," according to Zerafa. The Oct. 21 edition of Between The Lines reported that the Detroit Archdiocese had donated almost half a million dollars to the main organization backing Proposal 2 as of Oct. 8, 2004.
"The Church must be held accountable for promoting discrimination and injustice against all LGBT families."
