“We respectfully warn the Supreme Court not to cross that line,” reads the document. “We stand united together in defense of marriage. Make no mistake about our resolve.”
The pledge continues, “While there are many things we can endure, redefining marriage is so fundamental to the natural order and the common good that this is the line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross.”
After two and a half hours, oral arguments presented before the Supreme Court regarding whether states should be constitutionally obligated to issue same-sex marriage licenses ended on Tuesday.
According to the New York Times, the Supreme Court’s decision in June is likely to come down to a narrow 5-4 vote, and Justice Anthony M. Kennedy has been named as the justice who is likely to decide which way the court leans in making the decision as to whether the 14th Amendment requires states to uphold same-sex marriages and validate same-sex marriage licenses given out by other states.
