Same-Sex Marriage

Same-sex marriage has highlighted high-profile relationships between theology, church, state, and society. Though a 2013 Pew Forum survey noted that nearly three-quarters of Americans think that legal recognition of same-sex marriage is “inevitable,” evangelicals remain largely opposed to redefining marriage, with less than a quarter favoring the policy. The divide between evangelicals and mainline U.S. churches on this issue has been further fueled by increasing support by state governments, culminating with the Supreme Court’s June 2013 ruling against a provision in the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which prevented the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.
