New Mexico's Supreme Court has legalized homosexual marriage, making it the 16th state to do so.

Chris Donnelly of Voices for Family Values tells OneNewsNow the legal and cultural battle continues.

"This may take us years, but in the same way Roe v Wade looked utterly hopeless when it was put forward," says Donnelly. "But we see now today that the majority of Americans are now pro-life."

Donnelly describes the ruling as "judicial activism" because the justices wanted "secure, steady relationships for committed people," including homosexuals.

For the time being, Voices for Family Values will work with the legislature to get laws passed that will protect people of faith who are opposed to homosexuality.

Donnelly adds though that it may seem to be a dark day in the aftermath of the decision, there is still hope for New Mexico.
