Bangor student holds same-sex marriage rally
“What is the difference between a man and a woman getting married and two men or two women getting married?” Antonia Carroll, a 16-year-old junior, asked. “It’s that Y chromosome or lack thereof in one of the partners. Who cares about Y chromosomes?”
Rebecca Pelletier, 15, of Bangor, said she came to the rally from Mass at St. Mary Catholic Church in Bangor.
“I spent a really long time in prayer before I got involved in the campaign because I was so conflicted about what to do,” Pelletier, a sophomore at Bangor High School, said Sunday. “I talked to my priest and the leader of my youth group, who told me to do what felt right in my heart.”
