We Presented the Winning Case Today for Traditional Marriage
Today, four and a half years after the people voted to restore marriage in California as between a man and a woman, our distinguished legal team made a bold, thoughtful and compelling case to the United States Supreme Court for upholding Proposition 8.
We laid out the facts in indisputable terms:
- That nothing in the U.S. Supreme Court’s precedents in this area support the existence of a constitutional right to same-sex ‘marriage.’
- That the primary purpose of marriage – to increase the likelihood of children being raised by the mother and the father who brought them into the world – can only be achieved by a man and a woman.
- That the elevated political stature of our opponents demonstrates they are not a vulnerable class in need of extraordinary judicial protection.

It’s been our honor to fight this epic legal battle and we are deeply grateful for everyone who has offered their prayers and support.
