Military’s ‘Biggest Problem Is Consensual Sex’

    WorldNetDaily: “The numbers are rising, quite frankly, because an awful lot of women are now serving with men in close conditions. You now have women serving on submarines, which has never been true up until about two years ago. You have a situation where people are under stress, they’re working in very close conditions and things are going to happen,” Babbin said. “The biggest problem is not the offensive nature of sexual assaults. The biggest problem is consensual sex.”

    MLive.com: “Our study extends this current work by noting that LGBT discrimination can also affect how and what people dream for their future,” U-M professor José Bauermeister said in a release. “[Gay men's] dreams about becoming fathers—may fail to be a protective factor towards their psychological health if they live in states where LGBT discriminatory policies are in place.”

Car insurance fight challenges VA marriage law

    NBC12.com: The other driver didn’t have insurance. With her medical bills mounting, Tucker tried to access her wife Frazier’s underinsured motorist coverage. She also tried to access the same coverage of her in-laws, who they live with.

Christian Leaders Combat Epidemic of Fatherless Families With ‘Father-Shift’ Movement

    Christian Post: As proof of the epidemic nature of the problem, Father-Shift leaders point to data that includes the fact that, in America, 24.7 million children (33 percent) lived in a biological-father-absent home in 2010. More than 20 million lived with no father (biological, adoptive, or step) in the home. “This means that one out of every three children is growing up without a father present in the home,” Father-Shift states.

About that pedophile-sexual ‘orientation’ description: Whoops, just a typo

    One News Now: The APA created an uproar when it decided to classify pedophilia as a “sexual orientation” rather than a mental disorder in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM. Now, the APA is saying in effect it was just a mistake – equivalent to a typographical error or omission.

Attractions vs. actions: homosexuality and God’s story

    John Jonestreet at LifeSiteNews: Gay activists make much of allegedly “cured” individuals who relapse into homosexual lifestyles, and use these stories to strengthen their narrative: “We didn’t choose to be gay,” so many insist. “We’re born this way, and no amount of ‘reparative therapy’ can change that.” But it’s the argument within that argument that’s the most problematic: that unchanged dispositions automatically justify acting on those dispositions.

Marriage: A Luxury Good Accessible to All

Sorry, Marriage is a Luxury Good

    The Atlantic: Marriage is for everyone; failed marriages are for the poor. Bleak stuff. But it’s getting bleaker . . . Here’s why this trend—not just the move towards divorce like Derek talked about, but the move from nuptials entirely—is so gloomy. Getting married, and staying married, is one of the surest ways of securing a middle class life. By choosing not to wed in the first place, the poor are abandoning that chance at stability.
