How to Get Equipped for the Supreme Court’s Decisions

 

The Supreme Court has announced they will issue decisions in the Proposition 8 and DOMA cases tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10AM Eastern time.

Heritage has posted a very helpful article explaining how we can prepare to stand up for marriage tomorrow:

The Supreme Court is expected to rule in challenges to state and federal laws that define marriage as the union of one man and one woman [on Wednesday].

Below is a list of ways that you can prepare for the Court’s decisions.

Ahead of the Supreme Court’s decisions:

Get equipped on the marriage message. Download a free copy of What You Need to Know About Marriage and share the online booklet via Twitter, Facebook, and other social media. Read the “5 Things You Need To Know About the Supreme Court’s Marriage Cases.”

Share the message on social media and other platforms. Explain what marriage is, why it matters to public policy, and the consequences of redefining it. The Court should uphold Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act, respecting the constitutional authority of the American people and our elected representatives to determine marriage policy. We should continue to stand up for marriage as the union of one man and one woman because of the reality that children need a mom and a dad.

On decision day:

Tweet. Be sure to use the hashtag #1m1w (“one man, one woman”) on social media. [And also: #SpeakTheTruth]

[On Facebook please change your profile photo to this:]

Remind people that the debate over marriage will continue. Regardless of the Court’s decisions, the debate will continue, and we should continue to uphold the truth of marriage as the union of a man and a woman in the interest of children and limited government. The American people and our elected officials should be free to make marriage policy. Courts should not stop the debate about marriage policy currently underway through the democratic process.

And stay tuned right here for updates!
