Catholics for Marriage Equality will join the Lincoln County Coalition for Marriage Equality for a demonstration of support for gay marriage on Sunday.
The gathering is set for noon on the bridge over the Damariscotta River between Newcastle and Damariscotta, according to a release sent out this morning.
"Help hold our purple banners that proclaim the way life should be for all loving couples in Maine," the release says.
Of course the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland takes a very different stance on gay marriage, having played a significant role three years ago to repeal the state's gay marriage law. This time around, the diocese has said it will work to rally the faithful on the issue, although major financial donations are unlikely.
Earlier this week, gay-marriage opponents Protect Marriage Maine met with clergy to get organized and energized with just 11 weeks to go before election day.Tweet
