For the first time, Georgia’s marriage laws will be challenged

    Shelton Stroman, 42, who manages a pet daycare center, and Chris Inniss, a 39-year-old veterinarian, are the lead plaintiffs. Two other couples, including two of Atlanta police officers, and a 34-year-old woman will also be listed as plaintiffs. Georgia has been one of five states in the country that doesn’t have same-sex marriage litigation pending. The lawsuit to be filed today will change that.

    World Magazine: The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) sent a letter to Georgia lawmakers and to Christian schools this week defending the scholarship program and highlighting SEF “mischaracterizations.” ADF senior counsel David Cortman said, “No one should be ostracized because they don’t share the same sexual agenda as an activist group that opposes school choice. The Constitution protects the right of private, Christian schools to teach and follow biblical principles. Any efforts to prevent these schools from participating in the state’s tax credit scholarship program would violate the First Amendment freedoms of these schools and the students who attend them.”
