San Francisco's Catholic Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone (IX San Francisco) is taking it on the chin for his strong stance on Christian marriage, defined as a lifetime union between one man and one woman.
He is scheduled to be a main speaker -- one of four -- at Thursday's (June 19) March for Marriage and traditional marriage rally in Washington, DC. He is to be joined on the National Organization for Marriage platform by former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-Arkansas), former US Senator Rick Santorum (R-Pennsylvania), and New York State Senator Rubén Díaz (D-The Bronx). Both Gov. Huckabee and Sen. Díaz are ordained clergymen. The Governor is an ordained Southern Baptist minister and Sen. Díaz was ordained by the Church of God-Cleveland, TN.

However, it is only Archbishop Cordileone who is receiving pressure from all sides to back down as he is being painted as "anti-gay," a "hate monger" and "bigoted," and labeling the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), which champions the traditional understanding of holy wedlock, as an " anti-gay hate group."
