CCV would like to sincerely thank all of the churches and individuals who took time to pray for marriage in all the ways listed here. Thank you for praying for wisdom and discernment for the three judges on the panel of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.
We are cautiously optimistic that two of the judges will decide to uphold the constitutionality of the Ohio Constitution’s Marriage Amendment (along with similar amendments in Michigan, Kentucky, and Tennessee). Many legal experts and journalists who attended the hearings reported that Judge Jeffrey Sutton, thought by many to be the swing vote in this case, was rightfully suspect of whether it was the court’s proper role to decide an issue that should be decided by the people at the ballot box. Left-leaning MSNBC reiterated this observation in an article published this week.
