Rich Lowry: The Cohabitation Revolution

    Rich Lowry at National Review Online: But it only means that marriage is unraveling in a different way. According to a new study by the Institute for American Values and the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, cohabitation has increased 14-fold since 1970. About 24 percent of children are born to cohabiting couples, more than are born to single mothers, while another 20 percent experience a cohabiting household at some time in their childhood.

Robin Wilson: A winner-takes-all approach to state same-sex marriage laws is self-defeating

    SCOTUSblog: Professor Singer argues for same-sex marriage legislation stripped of any accommodations for religious organizations or individuals who adhere to a traditional view of marriage. The religious liberty accommodations I and others have worked to secure would allow such individuals and organizations to step aside from facilitating any marriage when doing so would violate their sincerely held religious beliefs. These exemptions would not allow religious individuals in commerce or government employment to act as a roadblock on the path to marriage. Instead, they cabin the ability to object to only those situations when no substantial hardship for same-sex couples would result.

“The Marxist Roots of Feminism”

    Spyridon Mitsotakis at FrontPage Magazine: Americans today need to understand that the feminist movement is rooted less in concern for every woman and more in far-left politics—even communist politics. There is a specter haunting the feminist movement, and that specter does not have the interest of women first, especially not conservative women.

    Baptist Press: “If Planned Parenthood truly cared about what’s best for women, they wouldn’t be repeatedly going to court around the nation to stop laws that allow women to make fully informed choices,” said Steven Aden, senior counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, which helped defend the law before the appeals court. “The court ruled rightly in this case in rejecting the arguments of the nation’s largest purveyor of abortion,” Aden said. “The protection of women is not unconstitutional.”
