ON-Lion Letter

In June, in its 5-4 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that same-sex marriage is a constitutionally protected right across the United States.  "Religious organizations and communities remain free, of course, to maintain their religiously formed view about marriage," according to a statement from the Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance (IRFA) in Washington, D.C.  "If their view differs from the new legal view, will they be free to live by their convictions? 

"The majority opinion noted the issue but gave little guidance," continues the statement from IRFA, which is supported by Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.  "Courts and legislatures will have to weigh in.  IRFA will provide commentary on the decision and guidance for faith-based organizations in the following days. 

"Today and tomorrow, just as yesterday, people and organizations of faith will serve their neighbors and seek to live and speak consistently with the truths that have gripped their hearts," it concludes.
