Colorado Springs, Colorado (December 7, 2012)— Jim Daly, president of CitizenLink, the public policy arm of Focus On The Family, issued the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to hear marriage cases:
“The Supreme Court’s decision today to determine whether the Constitution allows state and federal government to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman is a welcome development. When the executive branch of the government is no longer willing to defend its own law, the final arbiter must be the highest court in the land.
“Today’s announcement sets in motion a process that may conclude with one of the most momentous decisions ever rendered by the United States Supreme Court. Will the Court affirm the basic design of the family that has stood throughout cultures worldwide for multiple millennia, or will it engage in a sweeping exercise of social reengineering with profound ramifications for this and future generations?
“The justices and personnel involved deserve our prayers for wisdom and discernment.
