Today the Supreme Court ruled against states that have adopted constitutional amendments recognizing marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Civil government’s role in marriage should be to recognize marriage and respect it, not to redefine it or pretend that it is a government creation.
Though we may be deeply dismayed at this decision by the court, the problem is not simply a legal one. As a society we often fail to esteem marriage. Our culture frequently condones and even celebrates pre-marital sex, adultery and unnatural arrangements that diminish and erode the family. Our fight to restore and enhance the sacred institution of marriage as revealed by God, must be won in hearts as well as in courtrooms.
