Supreme Court Refuses Marriage Cases, Time for Texans to Act

This week, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to grant review of same-sex marriage cases involving the five states of Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin. The decision will allow rogue lower court decisions to silence the clear voice of the people in these states by overturning their state laws on marriage. The court’s decision also ensures the debate over marriage will continue – with Texas being a key battleground – and that Texas, for now, still retains the right to define marriage as one man and one woman.

Texas Values President Jonathan Saenz reacted to the court’s decision: “The decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to not take up the lower court rulings undermines both marriage and the rule of law, and it effectively silences millions of Americans in these states that have supported marriage as the unique union of one man and one woman. But for Texas, the decision today means that the redefinition of marriage will not be forced on our state at this time. The U. S. Supreme Court has simply refused to make a decision on this issue so Texas still retains the right to define marriage as one man and one woman while the marriage cases in Texas and Louisiana are on appeal.”

Stand with Houston Pastors

In an unprecedented attack on religious freedom, Houston Mayor Annise Parker and the Houston City Attorney have demanded, in a subpoena, that pastors in Houston turn over their “sermons”, “speeches” and other “communications” regarding “homosexuality, or gender identity.” The pastors have been targeted for speaking out against Mayor Parker's anti-religious LGBT special rights ordinance that passed earlier this year.
