2015 marks the third annual March for Marriage and this is the most critical march ever. It is our last, best opportunity to reach the U.S. Supreme Court before they decide whether marriage as it has existed throughout our history is unconstitutional. In recent months, activist federal judges across the country have issued illegitimate rulings redefining marriage against the will of 50 million state voters and legislators who voted to preserve marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The Supreme Court is finally expected to consider the issue this spring, with arguments expected in close proximity to the March for Marriage, and a decision expected by late June 2015.
The March for Marriage is a powerful demonstration to the media, opinion leaders, legislators and jurists that a majority of Americans still stand for marriage as it has been traditionally and historically defined and handed down through the centuries. A recent national survey found that 53% of American voters believe that marriage is only the union of one man and one woman, and that 61% of voters are opposed to the U.S. Supreme Court forcing states to require same-sex 'marriage.'
It's time for the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the legitimacy of state laws and constitutional provisions defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. This is what marriage intrinsically is, and any ruling forcing states to abandon this construct of marriage will not be legitimate.
The March for Marriage is poised to become an essential and indispensable vehicle for voicing the values of pro-marriage Americans in a way that cuts through the biased media narrative and demands hearing in the halls of power.
