It looks like
Eleanor Rossman and Christine O'Donnell of "Your Answers Matter," are their full names.
Couples or individuals from every deanery were invited to an orientation brunch at Fatima Center on July 14. Eleanor Rossman and Christine O’Donnell of the Pennsylvania For Marriage coalition, David Clark, Diocesan social concerns director, and Mrs. Paulukonis conducted the program.

In the States: "Pennsylvania Marriage Protection Amendment"
The right-wing Family Research Council is calling upon its Pennsylvania members to contact their state lawmakers, urging them to co-sponsor proposed legislation that would deny marriage equality for same-sex couples. The anti-gay "Pennsylvania Marriage Protection Amendment" will be introduced in January 2006 by state Rep. Scott Boyd (R-Lancaster); joined by Rep. Daryl Metalfe (R-Butler), Rep. Tom Yewcic (D-Johnstown), Rep. Katie True (R-Lancaster) and Rep. Teresa Forcier (R-Crawford). The Pennsylvania Family Institute - a state Family Policy Council member, affiliated with Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council - has formed the "Pennsylvania for Marriage" coalition to promote the measure. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania has also launched an on-line petition in support of the discriminatory amendment. A proposed constitutional amendment must successfully pass two successive sessions of the state Senate and House before being placed on the ballot; and does not require the governor's signature.
So the good news is that all the lies and dirty tricks tactics are, and will be exactly the same, nearly all of which have been refuted ad nauseum.
About.com goes through
a few of PFM's FAQ's and rips them to shreds. His into paragraph exemplifies my feeling to a tee:

Is it possible to offer a serious, considered argument against gay marriage? Yes. Unfortunately, almost no one who argues against gay marriage does so - just about all such people are anti-gay bigots who don't appear interested or capable of constructing serious, fair, and honest arguments.
Do you know anybody who could set up a comprehensive web site to counter PFM's? A one stop shop would be a great resource--to go to, and to refer to--for activists and concerned citizens alike. Also, you may want to consider a blog to address their ongoing activities - press releases / appearances, articles they are quoted in, Eleanor and Christine's musings from the road, etc.
P.S. I just wanted to clarify, these are nonthinking people who are counting on other nonthinking people to accomplish their goals. So your best weapon is information, and just getting the simple truth out there to be seen and understood.
