Marriage March in Washington, D.C.

(Worthy News)-- Religious leaders from a wide array of denominations have released a joint statement reaffirming their support for traditional marriage ahead of the Supreme Court's hearing of oral arguments on Tuesday. The Christian leaders have said that reaffirming marriage as being between one man and one woman is vital for protecting children and offering them both a father and a mother, the Christian Post reported.

"As religious leaders from various faith communities, we acknowledge that marriage is the foundation of the family where children are raised by a mother and a father together," the statement reads, in part.

The Rev. Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, the Most Rev. Foley Beach, the archbishop and Primate of the Anglican Church in North America, and Most Rev. Salvatore J. Cordileone, the archbishop of San Francisco and chairman of the USCCB Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, are just some of the notable names that have signed the letter. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.christianpost.com/news/christian-leaders-affirm-support-for-traditional-marriage-ahead-of-supreme-court-case-pastors-say-marriage-must-be-preserved-for-sake-of-children-138132/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
