SCOTUS Set to Make a Decision About the Sanctity of Marriage

The Supreme Court is about to write the final chapter of whether not it is constitutional to define marriage as between a man and a woman. 

Currently, it is legal in 36 states and the District of Columbia for homosexual couple to wed. The Supreme Court accepted challenges to same-sex marriage bans in four states – Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee, which a federal appeals court upheld in November 2014.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments in April, and is likely to decide in June.

Why is this important? This is an important moment for the culture of this country.

As Russell Moore, the president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, said, “This case could potentially transform the cultural landscape of America. We should pray for the court, that they will not seek to redefine marriage. Marriage was not created by government action, and it shouldn’t be re-created by government action.

“And even more than that,” Moore continued, “we should pray for churches who will know how to articulate and embody a Christian vision of marriage as the one-flesh union of a man and a woman in the tumultuous years ahead.”
