  • INFOGRAPHIC: What You Should Know About Marriage

    Tomorrow morning, the Supreme Court will release its opinions in cases challenging state and federal laws that define marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Here are five things that you should know about these cases and a list of ways that you can be prepared to tell the truth about marriage after tomorrow’s decisions.

    The Court should uphold Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act, respecting the constitutional authority of the American people and our elected representatives to determine marriage policy. We should continue to stand up for marriage as the union of one man and one woman because of the reality that children need a mom and a dad.

    Regardless of the Court’s decisions, the debate will continue, and Americans should continue to uphold the truth of marriage as the union of a man and a woman in the interest of children and limited government. The American people and our elected officials should be free to make marriage policy. Courts should not stop the debate about marriage policy currently underway through the democratic process.

    We put together this infographic to help you prepare for the Court’s decisions tomorrow. Share the facts about what marriage is, why it matters, and the consequences of redefining it.
