Gay Marriage Before the Court

The future of religious institutions rests in the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court justices whose ruling on California's Proposition 8, expected sometime in June, could change policies on adoptions, marriage counseling, employment, the contraceptive mandate and even student housing on religious college campuses.

The Supreme Court justices' ruling in the case Hollingsworth vs. Perry heard Tuesday will decide whether a lower court was wrong to declare that Proposition 8, a referendum that decided that same-sex couples may not get married, is unconstitutional.
