Discussion of U.S. Supreme Court marriage equality case on May 10
On May 10, at 9:15 a.m. in the chapel, Bill Harbison and Phil Cramer will discuss the marriage equality case that is to be argued before the Supreme Court this month. In 2013, three married couples who had moved to Tennessee challenged Tennessee's refusal to recognize their existing marriages and families on the basis of the couples’ gender and sexual orientation. They prevailed in federal court in Tennessee before being reversed by the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, setting the stage for the Supreme Court to now hear the Tennessee case along with marriage equality cases from Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio. All four cases will be argued before the high court on April 28, 2015. The U.S. Supreme Court's decision is expected the last week of June. Bill Harbison and Phil Cramer will be in D.C. for this historical argument.
On May 10, 2015, Bill and Phil will discuss the case during the Sunday School hour at 9:15 a.m. in the chapel. This discussion is sponsored by the Kairos Sunday School Class and all are welcome to attend.
