West Virginia Church of God passes resolution calling for protection of marriage as union between one man and one woman.

CHARLESTON, W.V. — The West Virginia Ministries of the Church of God passed a resolution Friday affirming marriage as the union between one man and one woman. The resolution also committed the denomination’s supportfor efforts to legally protect marriage in the West Virginia Constitution.

“Marriage is more than just any two people in a committed relationship. The majority of the people of West Virginia, including those in its religious communities, believe this,” said Jeremy Dys, president and general counsel of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia. “The union of a man and a woman has been the fundamental unit in every society. We are pleased that the Church of God approved this resolution in support of allowing the people of West Virginia to affirmthat truth through the adoption of a constitutional amendment protecting marriage.”

The resolution, approved Friday, reads in part, “As citizens of West Virginia, we avail ourselves of the opportunity to affirm the historic, legal, and reasonable definition of marriage by supporting and promoting an amendment to the state constitution…. We resolve, we will strongly encourage Christians throughout West Virginia to engage in the civic process in defense of marriage and in support of the government’s leadership in defining marriage as the union between one man and one woman….”

A copy of the resolution is available for download atwww.wv4marriage.com.

The Family Policy Council of West Virginia is a servant organization that advocates for policies that embrace the sanctity of human life, enrich marriage, and safeguard religious freedom.
