Regarding the U.S. Supreme Court Decision on Same Sex Marriage
In a 5-4 ruling on June 26, 2015, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the right of same-sex couples to marry is part of the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantees of due process and equal protection of the laws, and therefore any state law that in any way limits this right is unconstitutional and void. The effect of the Court’s decision was to invalidate laws and constitutional provisions in 13 states defining marriage solely as a union between one man and one woman. This raises questions for the church and ministers on how we respond to the effects of this decision. Below we have provided resources to help you stay educated to the subject and respond appropriately.
