Catholic bishops lead prayer march to Supreme Court as justices weigh gay marriage

The U.S. Conference of Bishops will lead thousands of people in prayer today as they march toward the Supreme Court to promote marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

They are congregating in Washington as the justices hear arguments on the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that effectively banned same-sex marriage in the state.

Tomorrow, the court will hear arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which prohibits gay married couples from getting the federal benefits that heterosexual couples can obtain.
