On Tuesday, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a brief statement that reaffirmed its stance in the debate playing out in the Supreme Court. The court finished hearing arguments over California's Proposition 8, a ballot measure supported by the church that overturned the state's law allowing same-sex marriage.

"We firmly support the divinely appointed definition of marriage as the union between a man and a woman because it is the single most important institution for strengthening children, families and society," the statement reads. "We hope the court will agree, and we look forward to the decision on this important matter."
