Family Research Council Hosts Panel Discussion, ''Obergefell v. Hodges: One Year Later''


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Much has happened legally and culturally in the year since the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges on June 26, 2015. While the ruling itself concerned same-sex marriage licenses, its implications for the family, the church, and religious liberty are profound. 

That’s why FRC is hosting a panel discussion featuring three experts who will address different facets of the Supreme Court’s ruling.  Dr. Paul Sullins, author of an amicus curiae brief in the Obergefell case, will comment on the ruling's impact on the family.  Mark Tooley will focus on how the ruling is affecting the church, and Travis Weber, J.D.,will review some of its legal implications.

WHO: Dr. Paul Sullins, Associate Professor of Sociology at Catholic University of America 

Mark Tooley, President of the Institute on Religion and Democracy 

Travis Weber, FRC Director of the Center for Religious Liberty

 

WHAT: Obergefell: One Year Later Lecture
