Today the Supreme Court of the United States issued 5-4 ruling which unjustifiably redefines marriage, an institution that for millennia has been known as only the union of a man and a woman.

The Court’s decision fails to adhere to the precedent set forth just two years ago in United States v. Windsor. In that case, Justice Kennedy described at length the deference the federal government must pay to the individual States and their definitions of marriage, citing case law as old as 1890.

Marriage is based on the biological fact that reproduction depends on a man and a woman, and the reality that children need a mother and a father. The lifelong, faithful union of husband and wife promotes healthy, durable families for the common good today and for future generations.

Instead of allowing Americans to affirm through their laws that a child’s mom and dad are both essential in the child’s life, the Supreme Court has instituted an edict that legally redefines marriage to be a genderless relationship based upon the emotions of adults.

Despite the Supreme Court’s ruling today, no court can truly redefine marriage. Marriage always has been and always will be the lifelong union of one man and one woman. This will not be the final word on marriage.

Nebraska Family Alliance will not stop advocating for strong families and the essential lifelong union of one man and one woman. Despite this ruling, there is much work that can be done to create a stronger marriage culture in our state and nation.

A bill that would change our state and non-discrimination statutes to extend special protections to sexual orientation and gender identity has been tabled for the year.

Thank you to all who called or emailed their senators and encouraged them to vote NO on LB 586. We expect this bill to come up again next year.

Lawmakers fighting to protect Nebraska's gay and transgender workers from discrimination failed to rouse the support of their uncommitted colleagues in the Legislature on Thursday.

Standing for Justice. Strengthening Families.
Introduction
Nebraska Family Alliance is a non-profit public policy education and research organization in Lincoln, Nebraska.

In 2013 Nebraska Family Council and Family First made a strategic decision to merge organizations and become Nebraska Family Alliance.

Nebraska Family Alliance builds on the strong foundation of both organizations to fulfill our mission: standing for justice and strengthening families in Nebraska.

Nebraska Family Alliance remains committed to excellence in:
-Protecting the sanctity of life
-Defending religious liberty for students, health care professionals, business owners, and churches
-Combating the injustice of human trafficking
-Standing firm for the definition of marriage because every child deserves a mom and a dad
-Advancing a culture of prayer in our state

Nebraska Family Alliance is governed by a joint board of directors. NFA is the state affiliate of Focus on the Family and works with CitizenLink, Alliance Defending Freedom, and other national organizations to bring national expertise to local issues.
