In addition, DignityUSA Board member Ramon Rodgriguez will be interviewed on CNN Radio en Espanol on the same topic. Ramon’s comments will be aired during news coverage for the next day or so via satellite radio.

Comments from Executive Director Marianne Duddy-Burke appear in the June 13, 2008 issue of the San Francisco Catholic that focused on the upcoming ballot initiative designed to overturn the ruling. She spoke about the need for people to understand the distinction between civil and religious marriage, and urged campaigners to be honest about the fact that the court ruling does not force any church to perform or recognize marriages they choose not to.
