“Even Dictionaries Grapple With Getting ‘Marriage’ Right” | NPR

    NPR: Lexicographers know they’re on the hot seat as they confront the changing uses of the word. When Merriam-Webster revised its definition a few years ago, it went with a two-state solution. It kept an older definition for “marriage” as “the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex,” but it added a second definition as “the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of traditional marriage.” Not surprisingly, that triggered headlines like “Webster’s Redefines Marriage” on conservative websites.

“Gay son of Rep. Salmon defends father”

    The Hill: Salmon continued that his father’s opposition centers on the definition of marriage. “As far as it goes with marriage for him it’s a matter of what marriage means to him — to him marriage is defined as between a man and a woman,” Salmon said. “It has nothing to do with the way he views a person’s relationship, and that’s the thing that I think is hard for people to understand.”

The Preservation of Marriage: A Battle Worth Fighting | Joan Frawley Desmond at NC Register

    Joan Frawley Desmond at NC Register: Cooper would not retreat: “[S]ociety’s interest in responsible procreation isn’t just with respect to the procreative capacities of the couple itself,” he said.
    “The marital norm, which imposes the obligations of fidelity and monogamy, Your Honor, advances the interests in responsible procreation by making it more likely that neither party, including the fertile party to that … marriage will engage in irresponsible procreative conduct outside of that marriage,” Cooper continued. “That’s the … marital norm.”

What feminism has come to | S.E. Cupp at NY Daily Post

    S.E. Cupp at NY Daily Post: When Susan Patton wrote a letter to The Daily Princetonian last week, she probably had no concept of the controversy it would create. What she later described as merely “some good advice from a Jewish mother” has earned her the scorn of feminists everywhere. Why? Because in 2013, you’re not supposed to talk to modern young women at an elite liberal university about the value of getting married.

    Todd Starnes at Townhall: “It would be an enormous mistake if they allowed homosexuality in scouting,” he said. “They have no idea what these folks really want to do.” Stemberger said there are already gays in scouting — “they are discreet, they are appropriate, they are private and they don’t act out in front of kids.”
    “What they want is full-blown gay activism in scouting,” he said, “and that’s what they can’t have under the current policy.”
