On June 27, Dr. Haas flew to Memphis, Tennessee, to give a presentation as part of the Memphis Fortnight for Freedom, one of many observances across the country that have been called for by the United States Bishops. The event took place at St. Francis Hospital and was organized by Derek Rotty, Director of Adult Faith Formation for the Catholic Church of the Incarnation. Dr. Haas's speech was on Marriage and Culture and, as Providence would have it, the speech was given the day immediately following the Supreme Court rulings on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and “Proposition 8” which had amended the Constitution of California and declared marriage was to be only between one man and one woman. There was a strong turn-out for the event and a strong commitment on the part of those present to continue the struggle against unjust governmental mandates and misguided court decisions!
