WASHINGTON, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On April 28th, the Supreme Court of the United States will hear Obergefell v. Hodges, et al., consolidated cases which will decide whether state laws defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman violate the due process and equal protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment. The debate about marriage and human sexuality has been ongoing for decades and this historic hearing will set the stage for the Court's written opinion on the matter -- expected in June.
To discuss the implications of these pending cases, Family Research Council (FRC) has brought together an exceptional panel of experts to discuss the marriage and sexuality issues before the Court. Included will be leading analysts who will discuss the roles constitutional law, statutes, social science, and the media will play in the Court's decision.
