Washington, DC—In reaction to today’s Obergefell v. Hodges verdict by the United States Supreme Court, American Life League president Judie Brown issued the following statement:
Respect for every human being’s life and the sanctity of marriage is the cornerstone and heartbeat of any nation. Today’s Supreme Court decision strikes at the heart of our nation just as Roe v. Wade did decades ago. Now, by judicial fiat, we are called to honor the fictional union of two people of the same sex. A nation that has lost its values has lost its soul. Our nation has become like a dead body floating downstream, to what destination only the devil knows.
Sister Lucia of Fatima related to Cardinal Carlo Caraffa that “the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family. Don’t be afraid,” she added, “because anyone who works for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be fought and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue.” And then she concluded: “However, Our Lady has already crushed its head.”
American Life League strongly opposes all attacks against the dignity of innocent human life and the sanctity of marriage, and will continue the hard work of rebuilding our culture from the ashes of its destruction.
