SCOTUS, Same-Sex Marriage, and Implications for Christians

Earlier today, the Supreme Court of the United States struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a 1996 law passed by Congress that barred recognition of same-sex marriages. They also ruled that the plaintiffs in the case of Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California, did not have the legal standing to bring that lawsuit.

These two legal decisions have significant, far-reaching implications for all Americans. What do Christians need to know?

This bulletin prepared by the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission outlines a few key details and suggestions for action. Feel free to download, print, and distribute at your church this Sunday.
