Religious Liberty: One Casualty in the War Over Marriage

Same-Sex-Marriage

The next twenty-five years will see an increased assault on religious liberty.

One such subtle assault is in the misuse of language—cleverly changing “freedom of religion” to “freedom of worship.” A more pernicious assault, however, is afoot—the attempt to redefine marriage and thereby open the way for federal recognition of same-sex marriage.

Currently, nine states and the District of Columbia have redefined marriage and allow same-sex couples to marry. The Supreme Court is now hearing oral arguments against the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (which for federal purposes defined marriage as being between one man and woman) and California’s Proposition 8 (which amended the state’s constitution and affirmed the traditional definition of marriage).
