These latest court decisions only further expose this truth. Also, Louisiana Governor and GOP presidential candidate, Bobby Jindal, is here with his reaction to the high court's ruling on marriage and how he plans to protect clerks in his state who have a religious objection to issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples.

Call to Action: We're still standing for marriage - stand with us.

Today, five justices on the Supreme Court have overturned the votes of 50 million Americans and demanded that the American people walk away from millenia of history and the reality of human nature. In reaching a decision so lacking in foundation in the text of the Constitution, in our history, and in our traditions, the Court has done serious damage to its own legitimacy. Just as with Roe v. Wade in 1973, the courts will not have the final say on this profound social matter.  We will not lapse into silence but will continue to speak uncompromisingly for the truth about what marriage is, always has been, and always will be: the union of one man and one woman. 

On this historic day, we want to encourage you to raise your voice in support of marriage. Please join the conversation on twitter by following @TPerkins and @FRCdc and using the sample tweet below to help raise awareness about the importance of marriage and religious freedom.

Supreme Court's Marriage Ruling is Shocking Abuse of Power, Will Never Be Accepted

Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins responded today to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision forcing the people in all 50 states to embrace same-sex “marriage,”  regardless of their votes to define marriage in their states as a man-woman institution.

Of the decision FRC President Tony Perkins said:

"Five justices on the Supreme Court have overturned the votes of 50 million Americans and demanded that the American people walk away from millennia of history and the reality of human nature.

“In reaching a decision so lacking in foundation in the text of the Constitution, in our history, and in our traditions, the Court has done serious damage to its own legitimacy.

 “No court can overturn natural law.  Nature and Nature’s God, hailed by the signers of our Declaration of Independence as the very source of law, cannot be usurped by the edict of a court, even the United States Supreme Court.

Gay Pride, Augustine, and Us

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Christian Post on June 30, 2015. Throughout America, "gay pride" parades took place over this past weekend in many major cities. Sadly, such parades are nothing really new. Consider Augustine's commentary about a "gay pride" parade of what he calls "effeminate" pagan priests that he witnessed early in the fifth century A.D.: Concerning the effeminates consecrated to the same Great Mother, in defiance of all the modesty which belongs to men ...

Four Reasons for the Supreme Court's Marriage Decision

by Travis Weber

Travis Weber is Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Townhall.com on June 30, 2015. On Friday, the Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that states must license same sex marriages and recognize such licenses issued by other states. There are four reasons for this decision: 1) The Court has taken to viewing itself as a social problem solver This decision and others like it are enabled primarily by an understanding which fails to take a limited view of the Court’s ...
