NC Values Coalition files same-sex marriage brief with U.S. Supreme Court

The North Carolina Values Coalition has filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court to defend the definition of marriage that voters solidified in the state constitution last year.

The amicus brief was filed as the Supreme Court takes up California’s marriage amendment and the federal Defense of Marriage Act later this year. The brief seeks to defend the state’s right to define marriage as only between a man and a woman.

“A state mandate to affirm same-sex marriage would have an explosive impact on religious persons who could easily treat all individuals with equal respect and dignity but cannot in good conscience endorse or facilitate same-sex marriage,” the brief says in part.

Tami Fitzgerald, executive director of the coalition, said in a statement that her organization filed the brief defending North Carolina’s amendment because Attorney General Roy Cooper has not.
