One year after a Massachusetts court allowed same-sex marriages, Concerned Women for America (CWA) says it has done nothing less than to mobilize Americans to defend marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
"It [same-sex marriage] has energized the pro-family movement because it has moved the debate beyond theory," Robert Knight, director of CWA's Culture and Family Institute, told the Los Angeles Times.
"And the realization has set in that this is about more than marriage,” Knight said. “It will affect, eventually, every classroom in the country, as textbooks begin to portray two men as a marriage. And it will affect businesses as they are forced to subsidize homosexual relationships.”
Fourteen state constitutional amendments resulted immediately, with several more on the ballot in 2006.
