Court Decision Will Renew Campaign for Marriage

Jun 29, 2015 by

By Jennifer Roback Morse, Crisis Magazine: The long-awaited US Supreme Court ruling on the definition of marriage is as bad as we had feared. The Obergefell ruling will have harmful long-term effects on the family, the church, self-government and society. Each one of the four dissenters wrote his own opinion, to distance himself from a decision that will surely rank as disgraceful in the history of American jurisprudence. I have only one point of disagreement with the general consensus: I do...

Jun 28, 2015 by

By Todd Beamon, Newsmax The head of an organization of African-American pastors told Newsmax Saturday that Christians must oppose the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling through civil disobedience because “you do something to get arrested to call attention to the injustice.” “I was in the civil rights movement, so I know how to do it” the Rev.

Why the church should neither cave nor panic about the decision on gay marriage

Jun 27, 2015 by

By Russell Moore, Washington Post: As I write this, the Supreme Court has handed down what will be the “Roe v. Wade” of marriage, redefining marriage in all 50 states.

The Court now has disregarded thousands of years of definition of the most foundational unit of society, and the cultural changes here will be broad and deep. So how should the church respond? First of all, the church should not panic. The Supreme Court...

By David Cameron, Pink News: The LGBT+ rights movement has been a great force for reform not just in the UK but also around the world.

This is why I’m so pleased to have introduced same-sex marriage and...

What does the future hold?

Jun 27, 2015 by

By Ryan T Anderson, Conjugality: As the four dissenting opinions make abundantly clear, yesterday’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges had nothing to do with the Constitution. This ruling is perhaps as clear of an example of judicial activism as any we have seen in recent years – or are likely (hopefully) to see in the future. The majority of the Court simply replaced the people’s opinion about what marriage is with its own. Nothing in the Constitution supplies an answer to the question What...
