Through a series of scheduled "webinars" and conference calls held at churches throughout the three battleground states, religious leaders from a diversity of churches – Hispanic, Evangelical, Pentecostal, Baptist, Presbyterian, Coptic, Orthodox, Catholic and more – are getting together to strategize on mobilizing the Church to oppose the spread of homosexual marriage.

Concerned Women for America recorded over 2,000 pastors registered for the first conference call on July 30, with five more dates scheduled on Aug. 27, Sept. 24, Oct. 8, Oct. 22 and Nov. 6. Currently 9 churches in Arizona, 25 in Florida and 168 in California are signed up as gathering places to join in the next conference call.

. . . Michael Mears, director of state legislative relations for CWA, in a press release: "I often wonder if our Christian leaders really understand the impact on their own churches if we fail."

Penny Harrington, director of legislation for CWA in California stated in a press release, "Proposition 8 is presently the most crucial battle of the culture war here. It is the responsibility of every pro-family individual in this state to understand and share the importance of protecting marriage by supporting Proposition 8 this November."

Additional information on the pastors' conference calls and locations available to participate in each of the three states can be found at the Pastor's Rapid Response Team website.
