The definition of traditional marriage is under attack as liberals seek to radically redefine an institution that has existed for thousands of years. In recent years, it has come under attack by left-wing judges who have sought to redefine marriage by judicial decree. Now, President Obama’s administration is actively working to repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, and is supporting lawsuits to have the law overturned by the United States Supreme Court and urging the top court to legalize homosexual “marriage”.
The Defense of Marriage Act is a federal law that prohibits the federal government from treating “same sex” relationships as marriage, and prevents states from being required to give legal recognition to gay marriages performed in other states.
Christian Coalition of Ohio will aggressively work to support traditional definition of marriage laws in Ohio and at the national level.
