If there was ever a time to take a stand for marriage—this is it.
The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the issue of same-sex marriage on April 28. The Court’s decision will likely determine whether states still have the freedom to affirm marriage as the union of a man and a woman, or whether the Court will redefine marriage for all 50 states.
The March for Marriage will take place in Washington, D.C. on April 25, just days before oral arguments in these historic cases. Whether you attend virtually by signing the petition or in person, this may be the last opportunity we have before the oral arguments to come together and show the world that the American people believe in marriage.
Marriage is designed for a purpose that no other relationship can truly fulfill: creating new life. Only a man and a woman can produce children, and children generally do best when they have both a mom and a dad in a committed, lifelong relationship. It’s an irreplaceable and beautiful relationship that we have a responsibility to ourselves, to our children, and to our country to protect.
Activists promised that redefining marriage wouldn't change anything for supporters of marriage. But they were wrong: people who believe in marriage have been targeted, their livelihoods threatened, and they have even been ordered to attend government-imposed "reeducation" because they refuse to affirm an understanding of marriage that violates their faith.
If the Supreme Court redefines marriage for the entire country, more people who stand for their faith like Barronelle Stutzman, Pastors Don and Evelyn Knapp, and Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips will see their freedoms stripped away.
