A Cause for All Tennesseans

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

Liberty of Conscience

David introduces the concept of our liberty of conscience which can be found in many historical documents including our Tennessee State Constitution. Most likely, many today would argue that this liberty, and referencing our First Amendment would simply mean that we have the right to think and therefore act however we so desire. But it would be error to disassociate this liberty of conscience from being rooted in the Word of God. Our Framers understood this. And the further we as a society stray from knowing God and seeking to live under His authority, the more we will continue to struggle with how to apply our laws and constitution to modern society.
