CWA of Georgia press release.

Today is yet another very dark day for our country. The Biblical view of marriage was mocked by not only the highest court in our land, but by the deafening applause from the highest leaders of our government. Once again, the Court takes into its own hands matters of policy which are left, by the authority of the Constitution, to the providence of the legislative branch. In acting as a super legislature, so to speak, the Supreme Court itself violated the constitutional parameters that were set in place for the preservation of liberty.

“It is a sad day in America when five unelected justices think themselves so powerful they dare overturn the votes of millions of Americans, including over 75 percent of Georgians, who went to the voting booth to preserve marriage as it had been understood throughout history, the union between one man and one woman,” states Penny Nancy, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America.

We have much work to do to reestablish a pro-marriage, pro-family culture in our nation, but we embrace the challenges ahead, knowing that we stand on solid ground when we say that marriage, as intended by God, is the best model for strong, healthy, stable families that serve as the only secure foundation for our society’s future.

We must also work to protect religious liberty, beginning with the passage of Georgia’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.  We have already seen how government was using its power, before this decision today, to punish citizens and organizations that do not comport to the pro-LGBT view of marriage.  Think about the pressure that the Supreme Court has brought upon people of faith with this decision.

Concerned Women for America of Georgia will continue to lead in the fight for the sanctity of marriage here in Georgia. It will take time, energy and resources. Will you donate today to help CWA of Georgia stay on the front lines at this critical crossroads for America?
