"‘Supporters of traditional marriage are being treated as bigots’, says Supreme Court judge.
Freedom of religion has been under increasing pressure since the legalisation of same-sex marriage, a US Supreme Court judge has said.
In 2015, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito warned that the ruling could lead to people who do not support same-sex marriage being treated as “bigots” by governments, schools and employers.
“We are seeing this is coming to pass,” he said last week.
“A wind is picking up that is hostile to those with traditional moral beliefs,” he said.
The Supreme Court judge said: “We are likely to see pitched battles in courts and Congress, state legislatures and town halls.”
“But the most important fight is for the hearts and minds of our fellow Americans. It is up to all of us to evangelize our fellow Americans about the issue of religious freedom,” he added.
Alito was one of four Supreme Court judges to dissent from the court’s 2015 decision to legalise same-sex marriage.
Tatchell said, “in a democratic society, people should be able to discriminate against ideas they disagree with.
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.

True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
