During the recent arguments before the Supreme Court on same-sex marriage, Justice Alito a very revealing interchange with President Obama’s Solicitor General Donald Verrilli—confirming for the nation what a number of cultural observers have been warning about for some time now.
Clip: Justice Alito: Well, in the Bob Jones case, the Court held that a college was not entitled to taxexempt status if it opposed interracial marriage or interracial dating. So would the same apply to a university or a college if it opposed same-sex marriage?
General Verrilli: You know, I don’t think I can answer that question without knowing more specifics, but it’s certainly going to be an issue. I don’t deny that. I don’t deny that, Justice Alito. It is—it is going to be an issue.
“It is—it is going to be an issue.” With those words the representative of the Obama Administration before the nation’s highest court confirmed with candor the threat we have long seen coming. Verrilli’s answer has put the nation’s religious institutions, including Christian colleges, schools, and seminaries, on notice.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/204542247″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] Read More »
