Brian Brown, the president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), believes a Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage will exacerbate the debate, not end it.

The high court on Friday announced it would hear two cases related to marriage equality: a case challenging the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and another challenging Proposition 8, California's 2008 voter-approved constitutional amendment banning gay nuptials.

Appearing on Fox News, Brown said it was time for the court to “correct some wrongs,” a reference to lower court rulings which sided with plaintiffs challenging the laws.

“There is no constitutional right to redefine marriage,” Brown said. “Our founding fathers didn't see it that way. And the last Supreme Court decision, Baker v. Nelson, the United States Supreme Court said there was no federal question here.”

“So this is essentially making the law up as you go along. It is reading into the constitution something that's not there. And I do not believe the United States Supreme Court is going to launch another culture war. Just like Roe v. Wade did not end the abortion debate, creating a right to redefine marriage will not end this debate, it will exacerbate it.”

Elizabeth Wydra of the Constitutional Accountability Center disagreed with Brown.

“You don't have to read anything into the constitution, like Brian said, you just have to read the constitution. And the constitution's plain text gives equal protection of the law to any person. And that applies to same-sex couples, just as it applies to opposite-sex couples,” she said. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
