Agudah publicly rejects Jewish groups claim that Toeiva marriage is compatible with Jewish law

Thirteen Jewish groups celebrated Supreme Court’s legalization of gay marriage nationwide R'L. Agudah in their statement had strong words to set the facts straight.
We reiterate that we remain firm and steadfast in our own religious beliefs, and reject the voices of those in the heterodox Jewish community who claim that same-sex marriage is compatible with Jewish law and tradition. The issue here is not whether all human beings are created in the Divine Image, or whether they have inherent human dignity. Of course they are, of course they do. The issue is whether the Torah sanctions homosexual conduct or recognizes same gender unions. It does not.
"The truths of Torah are eternal, and stand as our beacon even in the face of shifting social mores".
