Free to Believe

Religious Liberty Resources: Marriage

Marriage and family are the foundation of civilization, the seedbed of virtue, and the wellspring of society. Properly understood, "families" are formed only by ties of blood, marriage, or adoption, and "marriage" is a union of one man and one woman.

Statement

Supreme Court's Marriage Ruling is Shocking Abuse of Power, Will Never Be Accepted

 

Take Action

Congress should support your freedom to believe. Urge your members of Congress to support the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA).
