Obergefell: One Year Later

However, thus far these proposals have met with resistance for a host of reasons, whether political, philosophical, or economic. The existing tax regime is likely to be with us for some time.

One Year After Obergefell Shows Dissent Not Permitted

by Travis Weber

Travis Weber is Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Daily Signal on June 17, 2016. By now, nearly one year after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, it should be clear that the aggressive and unreasonable elements of the LGBT movement cannot harmonize themselves with freedom for Christians and other conscientious objectors. With few, commendable examples, the LGBT movement’s activist class, who advocated for same-sex marriage and who are ... (more)
