Engaging Weekend is a collection of articles you might have missed over the weekend. But we thought they were important and wanted to make sure you had a chance to read them.
In this piece for Citizenlink.com, Karla Dial asked FPCWV president Jeremy Dys about the state of marriage in West Virginia after the SCOTUS rulings on DOMA and Prop 8. Jeremy told Karla that homosexual activists want to see marriage redefined in West Virginia and are making moves in that direction. He said: “Activists have been preventing the people of West Virginia from voting on the definition of marriage for years. They even tried to block opportunities for our state to improve marriage by reforming our state’s divorce laws. Instead, they continue to press for these nondiscrimination laws that we already know are as bad for business as they are bad for religious liberty.” The Citizenlink article focuses on how the Supreme Court rulings will impact marriage on the state level. In some states we are already seeing challenges to state DOMA laws and the future of those laws in light of the SCOTUS ruling is uncertain. West Virginia does not have the strong protections for defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman that many states have. So what will happen in West Virginia in light of these rulings?
