Religious Freedom and Fairness for All

From the Amicus Brief of Major Religious Organizations, Apr 2015

Recognizing a new right to same-sex marriage would harm religious liberty. That harm is avoidable because neither the Constitution nor this Court’s precedents dictates a single definition of marriage for the Nation. Preserving religious liberty is a compelling reason not to give the Fourteenth Amendment a novel reading that would require every State to license and recognize marriage between persons of the same sex. At a minimum, the Court should carefully consider how a ruling mandating same-sex marriage would adversely affect religious liberty.
Also see the news release of the LDS church, "Religious Freedom and Fairness for All"


Will this become a question for future Presidential candidates?
Do you support a constitutional amendment restoring natural marriage? If not, then what exactly will you do to protect my religious freedom? If nothing, why should I support you? ("If the Supreme Court Imposes Same Sex Marriage, You Could Lose Your Church", John Zmirak, Apr 30, 2015)

After hearing Elder Robert D. Hales speak at Conference, I was prompted to start a petition to support the same ideals as the amicus brief. I am trying anywhere I can to reach out to people. This is to show the Supreme Court that American Citizens agree with what these brave religious leaders have taken a stand on, and that we are the majority!
