Open Letter to Supreme Court: We Obey God, Not Men
Some leading religious conservatives say they won’t go along with a Supreme Court ruling that would force them to violate what they call a “biblical understanding of marriage” as the union of a man and a woman.
Their open letter to the Supreme Court was published as a full-page ad in Wednesday’s Washington Post.
The ad said that “any judicial opinion which purports to redefine marriage will constitute an unjust law.”
(W)e will not honor any decision by the Supreme Court which will force us to violate a clear biblical understanding of marriage as solely the union of one man and one woman,” they stated. “We affirm that Marriage, as existing solely between one man and one woman, precedes civil government.
More than 60 people signed it, including Franklin Graham, Dr. James Dobson, Hispanic evangelical leader Samuel Rodriguez, and Rev. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.
They concluded by quoting the Bible, saying, “We must obey God rather than men.”
