Days before the U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments on the legality of same-sex marriage, hundreds of people gathered for a march through the streets of downtown Columbus.
The march began at Columbus Commons and weaved it’s way through downtown, on Saturday.
Those in attendance all voiced their support for same-sex marriage, carrying signs with slogans such as ‘love has no gender’ and ‘let people be human.’
“It has been too long,” said one marcher, Jathan Pugh. “It’s time that people have a chance to be married, and be together, and have it be legally binding so that they have the rights they deserve.”
On Sunday, the Family Research Council, is asking thousands of pastors to take part in ‘Stand for Marriage Sunday.’
Participating pastors are expected to lead their congregations, as they pray for the Supreme Court, ahead of Tuesday’s arguments.
The Family Research Council is a Christian organization, which supports the idea of marriage being the union between one man and one woman.
Ohio is one of 13 states which does not legally recognize same-sex marriage.
