Where Do We Go From Here

You might be disheartened by what has happened this week, and think that is the end. History has taught us it never is. Judicial edicts have repeatedly been the galvanizing events that trigger movements of conscience. 
From the Roe V. Wade decision that triggered today's robust pro-life movement to the Dread Scott case that triggered the emancipation proclamation, most movements of conscience were created by common Americans like you and me. We face just such a moment now.
Our many vocal witnesses to the importance of marriage have left an indelible mark on culture, and will "prove to be prophetic." Indeed, holding the Supreme Court accountable for their attack on the family is a vital part of recognizing the consequences that will follow.
Many have asked 'where do we go from here'? I hope you will be part of a critical closed door strategy meeting with Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, to discuss this question. We will meet October 23rd 7:00 pm at the Salt Lake Capitol.
Because of the private nature of the meeting, and the limited space we ask that you RSVP here as soon as possible. 

Why a Redefinition of Marriage Will Never Succeed

Truth Will Not Lie Down

This sweet photo from the rally 

symbolizes to me, everything about the destiny of the pro-marriage movement 
despite this recent attack.

Children will always need 
mothers and fathers.  Biology itself will continue to fight the redefinition of marriage.
An issue that sides with children will be continually renewed with young advocates. 

Celebration of Marriage Statement


Celebration of Marriage issues a statement on Supreme Court declining to hear Utah's case:

"The credibility of the judicial system is permanently damaged when it concludes that adult relationships are so important that children must give up their relationships with their own mother or father when it comes into conflict with gay marriage.

In denying to hear Utah’s case, the Supreme Court has turned a blind eye to a child’s need for both a father and mother. This causes irreparable rifts in every aspect of family law, from custody battles in divorce courts, to adoptions that idealize motherless and fatherless family structures. The resulting fracture of family law will weaken Americans’ natural respect for the Court and turn the question of children’s legal relationships into an unresolvable and painful chaos.

Although the lower courts have been allowed to redefine marriage in Utah, Utahns who stand with children will continue to vigorously support policy that prioritizes children’s most important relationships above other considerations."
