Rev. Albert Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, admonished followers in a tweet, “the challenge for Christians now is to speak the truth in love and to speak love in truth.  Love of neighbor means we cannot lie about marriage.”

Many Christian leaders believe the ruling will create a restricted role for people of faith in American society.

“The Supreme Court has stripped all Americans of our freedom to debate and decide marriage policy through the democratic process,” Jim Campbell, of the Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel, said. “The freedom to democratically address the most pressing social issues of the day is the heart of liberty.”

*** Many faith leaders believe the Supreme Court ruling recognizing gay marriage will put religious liberty at risk.

In the weeks before the ruling came down, the Southern Baptist Convention partnered with the Alliance Defending Freedom to provide guidance for churches and other faith-based institutions called Protecting Your Ministry. CBN News interviewed Dr. Russell Moore about the booklet earlier this month. Watch our interview below.

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez says the decision “serves as a defacto and legal catalyst for the marginalization of Americans who embrace a biblical worldview.”

Many leaders, such as Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, have already called for civil disobedience in response to such a ruling.  Others individuals and organizations are studying the ruling to determine the best ways to respond.
