Comment on brief filed by Prop. 8 opponents

Opponents of marriage filed briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court Thursday arguing that a redefinition of marriage should be imposed on Americans by the judiciary. The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Austin R. Nimocks:


“The wisest course is for the Supreme Court to resist demands to prematurely end the national debate over the future of marriage. Californians and Congress voted for marriage, and the court should respect the freedom to affirm society’s fundamental building block. Marriage between a man and a woman is a bedrock social institution that diverse cultures and faiths have honored throughout the history of Western Civilization. The freedom of the people to affirm this vital institution should not be taken away.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
