Supreme Court Undermines Marriage Law, Churches at Risk

by Stuart Shepard, CitizenLink: The U.S. Supreme Court chose not to take up several challenges to marriage, today. That’s bad news for people who support the institution as the union of one man and one woman.

The impact is immediate in five states: Marriage is now redefined in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The action-by-inaction is expected to have a negative impact in six additional states: Colorado, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Stuart Shepard gets a quick reaction from Focus on the Family Judicial Analyst Bruce Hausknecht. He says churches in those 11 states need to be paying special attention to how this may impact the use of their buildings.
What can you do right now? The best action in the short term is to change the balance of power in the U.S. Senate. That’s where any future Supreme Court Justices will be confirmed. CitizenLink is currently engaged in a massive effort with our associated state groups to rally pro-family voters to the polls.
