MONTGOMERY, AL: The Foundation for Moral Law, a legal foundation dedicated to the preservation of religious liberty and traditional marriage, expressed regret that U.S. District Judge Callie V.S. Granade struck down Alabama’s Sanctity of Marriage Amendment that prohibited same-sex marriage.
Foundation President Kayla Moore emphasized that Judge Granade’s ruling applies only in the Southern District of Alabama and that the ruling does not affect a same-sex marriage case the Foundation is defending in the Middle District. She said the Foundation will continue to defend traditional marriage in that case as well as others, and she expressed optimism that laws protecting traditional marriage will ultimately prevail in the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Alabamians approved the 2006 Sanctity of Marriage Amendment by 81% of the vote,” she said, “and the will of the people should not be lightly discarded in favor of an alleged right that is found nowhere in the Constitution.” She added that the Foundation bears no animus toward the plaintiffs in this case or in any other: “Jesus loves them, and He died for their sins as well as for mine. But homosexual conduct is still sin, and we must stand firm for what is right.”
