News Release: Regarding U.S. Supreme Court Marriage Development

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Lansing, Mich.) — Michigan Catholic Conference President and CEO Paul A. Long responded to today’s decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to hear cases this year from the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit addressing state policies that define marriage as between one man and one woman, including the 2004 voter-approved Michigan Marriage Amendment:

“This is a significant moment for the nation’s highest court to move toward settling one of the most important societal questions in recent history,” said Long. “Marriage is the foundation for a just society; it is the only institution that unites children with their mother and father together. For the sake of the common good, and to secure the fundamental building block for all of humanity, we pray the Supreme Court will inevitably find traditional marriage amendments constitutional both in Michigan and throughout the nation.”

Michigan Catholic Conference is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state.
