Traditional Marriage Depends on Louisiana!
On Monday, October 6th, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected appeals from five states seeking to preserve lawful bans on same-sex marriage. The Court’s decision does not legalize same-sex “marriage” nationwide, but does force the redefinition of marriage upon those five states and potentially other states in the 4th, 7th, and 10th circuits.
“Yesterday’s decision simply ups the ante’ on Louisiana’s two marriage cases – one pending in the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and the other pending in the Louisiana Supreme Court,” said Gene Mills, president of Louisiana Family Forum. “LFF holds that the people of any state – rather than unelected unaccountable federal court judges – should be making marriage policy decisions.”
Kyle Duncan, the attorney hired by the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office to argue in support of the state’s same-sex marriage ban in Louisiana’s federal case and state case, said, “If courts out there start going the other direction … then you are going to have a real split in authority and more reason for the Supreme Court to step in.”
