The Supreme Court issued a major decision today. The Court has rejected an appeal from a gay couple who wanted both of their names to appear on the Louisiana birth certificate of the child they adopted. The court said Tuesday it won’t review a federal appeals court ruling against the adoptive parents.
The 5th circuit’s opinion upheld that the U.S. Constitution does not obligate Louisiana to capitulate to a New York law or to the homosexual activists in a same-sex marriage who attempted to redefine “family” as established in Louisiana. The activists sought to remove the stipulation that birth certificates in Louisiana only contain the mother or the dad, not two dads or two moms. State law prohibits adoption by unmarried couples whether heterosexual or same-sex.
Assistant Attorney General Kyle Duncan was the chief defender for the citizens of Louisiana. This godly young man has endured more pressure than anyone could imagine but he stood strong for principle and prevailed. He exemplified courage.
