On April 28, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for and against redefining marriage in America. Marriage between a man and a woman has existed since the beginning of human history. It is the cornerstone of our ordered society. Before federal judges began to overturn marriage laws, voters in 30 states had preserved natural marriage in their Constitutions.
Now the High Court is poised to decide for us all whether the emotional and sexual desires of adults should trump the needs and rights of children to receive the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual benefits from being raised by both a father and mother. This time-honored institution is in serious trouble. The consequences this decision could have on our religious freedom, the freedom to believe and live according to those beliefs, are staggering. Should the Court redefine marriage, our religious liberty — the foundation for all of our freedoms — is at risk.
The Family Research Council is asking churches across America to hold a special “Stand for Marriage Sunday” on April 26, just two days preceding the oral arguments before the Supreme Court. All believers should pray for the Supreme Court and the attorneys presenting the arguments, that truth would prevail and that natural marriage would be honored by the arguments and by the decision of the justices.
Please see this short video which explains the importance of this decision and the impact it will have on everyday Americans who seek to live out their faith. Forward it to your church leaders and ask them to host Stand for Marriage Sunday: Religious Freedom at Risk.
