Cornerstone - SCOTUS Ruling on Same Sex Marriage

Cornerstone Action

The first question presented to the Supreme Court was whether or not the constitution requires a state to license same-sex marriage.  The Constitution in no way requires states and their citizens to license same sex marriage, yet the Supreme Court has ruled otherwise. By doing so, it has redefined an institution that has proven through the centuries to benefit humanity.

Redefining marriage has severe social and cultural repercussions that we can expect to see in the wake of this decision.  Particular concerns arise as we consider how marriage affects children and parental rights.  We know that children and families are stronger when a married, committed mother and father are present.  Don’t our children at least deserve this?  We’ve already seen the results of the disintegration of marriage.  Redefining marriage to include same-sex partners will only lead us to further cultural instability.     

The second part of this decision has also undermined the Tenth Amendment.  Voters in 31 States have already voted to keep the definition of marriage as one man and one woman. By disregarding this, the Supreme Court has overstepped its bounds.  The Supreme Court should not be able to overrule the United States citizens with a one case ruling.  According to the ruling, States would need to recognize same sex marriages performed lawfully out-of-state regardless of the opinion of that State’s citizens.  

While we are disappointed in the ruling, this is not the end of the debate.  In fact, this is the beginning of larger discussion on marriage, family and the importance that both these issues have in our country’s well being.

Executive Director Bryan McCormack commented, “We are severely disappointed in the Supreme Court’s lack of respect for the millions of citizens across the United States who believe in traditional marriage. This was not the Supreme Court’s decision to make, however, we still remain hopeful. We remain hopeful in the health and goodness that marriage between a man and a woman brings to our state and our nation.”

NHDP Statement on Supreme Court Decision Affirming That Marriage Equality Is The Law Of The Land 

Concord, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision affirming that marriage equality is the law of the land:
 
“Today’s decision marks a truly historic day in our fight for equal rights, a victory that was only possible because of the tremendous leadership of courageous individuals in New Hampshire and across our nation.”
 
“I have been extremely proud to stand with Governors Shaheen, Lynch and Hassan as they have fought to affirm true equality for all under the law, and our state’s leadership on marriage equality and LGBT rights also wouldn’t have been possible without the leadership of Senate President Larsen and Speaker Norelli. We must also recognize thte extraordinary leadership of President Obama, Congresswoman Kuster, Congresswoman Shea-Porter and Congressman Hodes who have all fought tirelessly in Washington for the Granite State values of freedom and inclusion.”
 
“Although Granite Staters have been leaders in the fight for equal rights for many years, there are still far too many that want to reverse our progress. The New Hampshire Republican Party (whose anti-equality platform is now unconstitutional), Kelly Ayotte, Frank Guinta, and every one of the Republican presidential hopefuls have all fought against the rights of our neighbors, friends, and relatives. We cannot and we will not let them pull our nation backward.”
