Can you help me understand the Supreme Court's decision in the same-sex marriage case, Obergefell v. Hodges? What did the justices really say, and what are the implications of their decision going forward?

Today the Supreme Court issued a disappointing decision that imposes same-sex marriage on all fifty states. Although this result was predicted by many observers, the action of the Court is nonetheless startling in its rejection of a societal understanding of marriage that is thousands of years old. It tramples on the democratic process by overruling the 50 million voters in thirty-one states who voted for one man, one woman marriage amendments, and creates a new federal constitutional right in an area where our founding document is silent.

We are also concerned that this decision will fan the flames of government hostility against individuals, businesses, and organizations whose religious conscience prevents them from officiating at, participating in, or celebrating such unions. We’ve already watched this hostility operate against wedding vendors, military chaplains, and others, and anticipate that today’s decision will open the door to an unwelcome escalation of this problem.

Ultimately, however, no court can change the eternal truth that marriage is, and always has been, between a man and a woman. Regardless of today’s decision, Focus will continue to address the importance of one man, one woman marriage to families, society, and especially for children who have a right to both a mother and a father. We praise God for the opportunity to shine a light on His divine plan for the family during the years ahead.
