WASHINGTON, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today Federal Judge Martin L.C. Feldman upheld the right of Louisiana voters to preserve marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The judge wrote that "[t]he State of Louisiana has a legitimate interest under a rational basis standard of review for addressing the meaning of marriage through the democratic process."
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, a former Louisiana legislator, made the following comments:
"This ruling is a victory for children, each of whom need and desire a mom and dad, something our public policy should encourage. This decision is a victory for the rule law, and for religious liberty and free speech which are undermined anywhere marriage is redefined.
"We commend Judge Feldman for refraining from judicial activism and recognizing that Louisiana voters are free to uphold natural marriage in their state's public policy. He rightly declared that the Courts have no authority to unilaterally change the definition of our most fundamental social institution.
"We thank Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell and his special counsel, Kyle Duncan and Mike Johnson, for their work to defend natural marriage and the rule of law," concluded Perkins.
