More Courts Get It Right, but Marriage Still Hangs in the Balance


Two more courts ruled Friday against radical efforts to change the definition of marriage as the union of a man and a woman. A federal appeals court overturned a district court decision, thus reinstating the state marriage amendment that was adopted by over 70% of Nebraska voters. FRC filed a friend-of-the-court brief in this case. Meanwhile in Tennessee, that state's Supreme Court rejected the ACLU's effort to keep a marriage amendment off the ballot this fall. Despite the overwhelming support for state marriage amendments, and despite a string of recent court victories for traditional marriage, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) seems determined to align itself ever more closely with the radical advocates of same-sex "marriage." A DNC spokesman has unveiled "a five-point plan for fighting" efforts by voters to preserve the definition of marriage. Both New Jersey and Washington are awaiting high court decisions at any time that could make them the second and third states to legalize counterfeit homosexual "marriage." We need to take the definition of marriage out of the hands of judges once and for all. That's why it's important for the U.S. House of Representatives to pass the Marriage Protection Amendment to the U.S. Constitution this week.
