Pew Report Reveals Media Bias

A new Pew Research report reveals what every supporter of real, heterosexual marriage already knows full well- that all aspects of mainstream media are skewed to inflate the actual reality of public opinion in support for gay marriage.  If you are short on time you could stop after reading the title, “Far More Coverage Of…

Marriage Is Good For You (and it’s not just the commitment)

I often hear gay marriage supporters speak of how the “benefits” of marriage should be extended to all.  And to some extent, I agree.  I support legislation that would allow hospital visitations, property arrangements, end-of-life decisions, etc. to be equally applied to same-sex couples.  (I believe that redefining marriage redefines parenthood, and therefore oppose gay marriage.)…

The Future of No-Longer-Marriage

“Gay marriage is a lie.” “Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we’re going to do with marriage when we get there.” “It’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist.” You may have missed the story of prominent gay activist Masha Gessen’s surprisingly honest speech on the real goal behind her…

Hey Millenials- You Get It

So back to the three sweet girls I mentioned in my last post.  They asked me to state in two minutes my case for traditional marriage.  Here it is: Millennials, if any generation understands the pain of fragmented family, it is you. Never before has our nation witnessed more children who are growing up outside…

Engaging the World

Once again, the US is talking about gay marriage.  Amidst pre-school carpooling, laundry-folding, and making vats of spaghetti sauce, I catch snippets of Nina Totenberg’s commentary on Proposition 8 arguments to the Supreme Court.  Many on Facebook have donned red “=” profile pictures.  There are renewed calls for Christians to boycott my beloved Starbucks over Howard…

Marriage, poverty, and self-control.

A couple days ago I had breakfast with a dearly loved liberal friend.  She is a biologist and doing valuable work to protect our earth’s natural resources around the globe.  Despite our differing perspectives, we found common ground regarding our values- specifically in anti-trafficking efforts, feeding the hungry, and fighting poverty.  Because we have both…

The great *stigma* divide.

“You sent me the link to your blog, and I knew I was never going to open it,” one of my closest friends who falls on the other side of this issue told me. It was reported that a family member said something to the effect of: “I just began reading a few words of…
