The Supreme Court struck down a key provision in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that denied benefits to legally married gay couples.
The Supreme Court announced disturbing decisions today on two important cases dealing with marriage law. The Court refused, however, to create a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.
By a vote of 5-4, married gay couples will now be able to receive the same tax, health and retirement benefits that are available to married heterosexual couples.
While most U.S. states uphold the traditional definition of marriage, same-sex couples are now allowed to get married in 12 U.S. states, as well as Washington, D.C.
What we are seeing is another example of Obama promising to change the landscape of America. A number of prominent political leaders have called for DOMA to be struck down, including President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton, who signed DOMA back in 1996. Obama has said that if he could, he'd strike down all bans on same-sex marriage. Clinton, on the other hand, explained that circumstances of the time led him to sign DOMA. In March, the former president said that now times have changed, and he described the law as "unconstitutional."
Most Christians, however, oppose the redefinition of marriage, insisting that it is a union solely between a man and a woman.
Regardless of the Supreme Court's decision, conservative Christians need to continue fighting for the culture of marriage and family. But keep in mind that the groundwork for marriage equality has already been laid with DOMA's fall.

But God has not changed His mind, and do you really think that if He judged Sodom and Gomorrah for the same “sin,” that He is going to let America slide...think again my friend.
