A marriage rally held Friday night outside the District 1 Councilman Diego Bernal's office brought out dozens to protect what they call “the natural family.”
Supporters cheered and chanted against Thursday’s approval of the nondiscrimination ordinance.
With an 8-3 vote, San Antonio City Council members added gender identity, sexual orientation and veteran issues to the list of protected classes.
“What we got here is a clear violation of the First Amendment of religious rights of personal thoughts and we feel it's completely unconstitutional,” said George Rodriguez, of the South Texas Alliance.
Supporters of the "natural family" now want to recall the eight councilmembers who voted to approve the ordinance.
"We’re gathering signatures for the recall of Councilman Diego Bernal and also for the Mayor Julian Castro,” said supporter Gina Castaneda.
Not everybody that showed up was a supporter.
"I just think it's kind of ridiculous that were living in this time and age. I mean, we want to be equal. We want be a part of society and be recognized as a group ... and not be looked down upon," said Anthony Castillo.
Members of the San Antonio Family Association said they will meet outside Bernal’s office until they collect enough signatures for the recall.
