Church Reaffirms Position on Marriage
Following Supreme Court Hearing

Salt Lake City — 

In response to media requests, the following statement was issued today by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:

Today the Supreme Court of the United States heard arguments regarding the definition of marriage in this country.

We firmly support the divinely appointed definition of marriage as the union between a man and a woman because it is the single most important institution for strengthening children, families, and society.

We hope the court will agree, and we look forward to the decision on this important matter.
