Yesterday, the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which heretofore prevented the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages, was ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. Presently, thirteen states (California, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington), the District of Columbia and five Native American tribes have legalized same-sex marriage.
In light of our high court's decision, listen
to the strangely appropriate commentary by Isaiah at such a time as this.
"Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found. Truth stumbles in the streets, and uprightness cannot enter" (Isaiah 59:14).
