Supreme Court Gay Marriage Ruling Will Harm Religious Freedom, Marginalize Biblical Worldview

“Americans will not stop standing for transcendent truth, nor accept the legitimacy of this decision,” Perkins continued. “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.”


Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, stressed in his statement that it was “improper” for the court to redefine an institution that has existed long before the creation of the government. Because of the court’s ruling, Moore argues that there will be “wide-ranging consequences” for America’s families and religious freedom.


“I believe this action of finding some illusory Fourteenth Amendment right to same-sex marriage will have wide-ranging and perilous consequences for the stability of families and for freedom of religion,” Moore wrote. ” In the wake of this decision, we must ensure that the American principles of pluralism and religious liberty are maintained, as the religious convictions of millions of Americans necessarily cause us to hold a different, more ancient, view of marriage than the one the Court has imposed. Additionally, today’s decision reminds us of the importance of electing a president who knows how to appoint jurists rather than would-be legislators to the bench.”


Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, said in a statement that the court’s decision will serve as a “defacto and legal catalyst for the marginalization of Americans who embrace a biblical worldview.”
