Kansas Bishops Respond to Supreme Court’s Marriage Decision

June 26, 2015

We the bishops of Kansas are deeply disappointed by today’s Supreme Court decision, though sadly not surprised.  While the government may control the issuing of marriage certificates, marriage remains unchangeably a coming together of the male and the female for their good, the good of children, and the good of society.  This reality cannot be altered by legislator or judge.  We encourage all people of good will to pray for our country and to support a culture of marriage that will help restore respect for God’s plan for the family.
