Traditional Marriage receives another blow from a California Judge. Federal judge, Vaughn Walker, struck down Proposition 8, the amendment in favor of traditional marriage between one man and one woman. The judge’s decision is contrary to the will of the many people who have voted in favor of defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman.
The USCCB released a statement Wednesday afternoon decrying the decision.
In 2006, prior to a VA ballot initiative, the Virginia Bishops spoke to the sanctity of marriage stating, “Because God designed the marital union as part of our intrinsic nature and established it as the foundation of our civilization, the proper role of both church and state is one of stewardship, to preserve our Creator’s great gift of marriage from one generation to the next.”
Marriage was instituted by God for the good of spouses, children and society. We must continue to fight for traditional marriage for the spiritual and temporal good of all.
