“The decision by this Supreme Court to redefine marriage contrary to global and historical understandings of the word no more settles the national debate on marriage than the Court’s Roe v. Wade decision over 40 years ago settled the national debate on abortion,” Timothy Head, executive director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, an Atlanta-based conservative public policy organization, said in a statement.

“To think otherwise is simply naïve.”
