A group of 64 legal experts and scholars have signed a statement calling on Americans to oppose the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide.
The Washington, DC-based American Principles Project posted the legal experts' statement Thursday on their website in which they denounced the 5-4 ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges.
"The Court's majority opinion eschewed reliance on the text, logic, structure, or original understanding of the Constitution, as well as the Court's own interpretative doctrines and precedents, and supplied no compelling reasoning to show why it is unjustified for the laws of the states to sustain marriage as it has been understood for millennia as the union of husband and wife," declared the statement. more >>
Franklin Graham, the son of renowned evangelist Billy Graham and CEO of Samaritan's Purse, is calling out President Obama for what he deems as his failure to acknowledge the slaughter of Christians in the horrific mass shootings in Umpqua, Oregon, last Thursday.
