Protecting Marriage & Family

Society begins with marriage and the family. Marriage is the preeminent and the most fundamental of all human social institutions: A bond between one man and one woman, intended for life, and open to the gift of children. Children do best in a home with a mom and a dad.

The institutions of civil government should defend marriage and not seek to undermine it. Civil institutions do not create marriage nor can they manufacture a right to marry for those who are incapable of marriage.

No civil institution, including any court, has authority to redefine marriage any more than it can redefine gravity. Redefining the institution of marriage is improper and outside the authority of the government.
