The Supreme Court has heard arguments for and against gay marriage, and a decision is expected by the end of June.

The High Court will decide if the 14th Amendment can require all states to allow same sex marriage. It will also decide if the amendment can require states to recognize same-sex marriages from other states.

"Only three states have actually voted for same same-sex marriage," Mike McManus, head of Marriage Savers, a ministry to strengthen the institution of marriage in America, said.

"Eight other legislatures have voted for it, but we have it in 37 states because the courts have imposed it in 26 additional states," he continued. "It seems to me it should be up to each state to decide whether they want to allow same-sex marriage."

McManus said he believes the Supreme Court will protect traditional marriage. He also writes a regular column on marriage and family issues.
