Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), says he's “confident” the Supreme Court will uphold state gay marriage bans.

Reacting to the news that the high court will hear cases challenging marriage bans in four states, Brown predicted a win for marriage equality opponents at the Supreme Court.

“We are confident that the Supreme Court has chosen the 6th Circuit case in order to affirm the finding of the appeals court, just as it did in the cases of Windsor v. United States and Sabelius v. Hobby Lobby,” Brown said in a statement. “We will be watching this case closely and anticipate an eventual victory for the democratic process, religious liberty, and the cherished institution of marriage which forms the very bedrock of our society.”

Windsor is the 2013 case which struck down a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), leading to federal recognition of the legal marriages of gay couples. The case has been widely cited by state and federal judges in cases challenging state bans. Brown has previously accused judges of “twisting” the decision.

“This activist judge is grossly twisting the Court's ruling in the DOMA case in order to justify a ruling that is completely at odds with the law,” Brown said of US District Judge Timothy Black's reasoning in striking down a portion of Ohio's ban as unconstitutional.

At the end of 2013, Brown predicted victories for opponents of marriage equality in the new year. At the time, gay couples could marry in 16 states plus the District of Columbia. That number climbed to 35 in 2014 with Florida becoming the 36th state in the first week of January, 2015.

“[O]ne year of slight victories does not make a myth reality. Next year we'll show that history – and not myths – is what finally matters. And history is on our side!” he said.
