Dozens of opponents have filed legal briefs urging the justices not to enforce a sudden, radical change on society by redefining what constitutes a marriage.
One of the top arguments made in the briefs contends that same-sex marriage could harm children because information indicates children raised by two fathers or two mothers suffer more emotional pain.
In fact, six children who were raised by same-sex couples have even filed briefs stating their opposition to redefining marriage.
Meanwhile, supporters of traditional marriage also contend that a ruling in favor of same-sex marriage will remove all boundaries, opening marriage to three or more people.
“Expanding the definition of marriage away from the way cultures and civilization have always defined it can only lead to further confusion,” said the Rev. Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.
The Supreme Court will hear the case on April 28.
