Statement of Bp. Johnston regarding Supreme Court on marriageBy: Bishop James V. Johnston Jr.
The Supreme Court decisions [June 26] were deeply disappointing. Laws that reflect the truth about marriage as a union between one man and one woman should be upheld, as these ultimately protect children and their rights to be conceived and raised by their mother and father. Today’s decisions further imperil true marriage, family, and the nation’s common good. It will be important that states and communities across the nation strive to preserve true marriage as much as possible.
