Family Research Council Commends Texas Officials for Declining to Blindly Follow Five Justices



WASHINGTON, June 29, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a statement calling the U.S. Supreme Court ruling an act of "lawlessness" and provided guidance that "county clerks and their employees retain religious freedoms that may allow accommodation of their religious objections to issuing same-sex 'marriage' licenses. The strength of any such claim depends on the particular facts of each case."

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins issued the following statement in response:

"I find it refreshing and encouraging that state officials are declining to blindly follow five justices who have redefined society's most fundamental institution -- marriage. The Court got it wrong in their ruling and they got it wrong in thinking their edict would force Americans to accept same-sex 'marriage' and the corresponding loss of their most basic freedoms. States must ensure the government does not use this ruling to discriminate against those who continue to believe in natural marriage," concluded Perkins.
