God-Given Marriage

God-Given Marriage is a new initiative that challenges the way Tennessee’s elected officials have applied the “right to marry” holding in the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges decision to Tennessee’s marriage licensing statutes.

God Law & Liberty

Do We Really Need a State License to Marry?

As we address marriage laws in the state of Tennessee and the unconstitutionality of the Obergefell v Hodges decision in its effect to commandeer state officials to do the bidding of the Supreme Court, we also take a look at marriage licensing. Who created the institution of marriage? God? Or, the government? Many erroneously believe that in order to be married in the sight of God, one needs to first secure a government-issued permission slip. But the truth is that laws should not imply the conveyance of a "right" to marry, but instead, should "secure" the obligations of a marriage between a man and a woman, entered into by their own volition and without interference from the state.
