Millennials: Marriage doesn’t matter – Unless it’s my marriage

    The Daily Signal: Millennials don’t seem to think getting married and having children is very important to society. According to a recent Pew survey, only 29 percent of 18-24-year-olds and just 35 percent of those 25-34 agree that “society is better off if people make marriage and having children a priority.” Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean today’s young people have completely kicked marriage to the curb. It may just mean that they are less enthused about marriage at this point in their lives, as an Atlantic article points out .

The institution of marriage should not exist! Who said it?

    Nathan Cherry: In the effort to redefine marriage there is a concerted effort to present homosexual couples as similar, if not exactly like heterosexual couples. They are committed, loving, couples that like to watch movies, golf, and host dinner parties. This is far less reality and far more campaign strategy intended to create an emotional narrative that will lure unsuspecting people into support for marriage redefinition.

Marriage about more than children, but not less

    The Tennessean: Marriage isn’t just about children. We agree with Daniels on that (and, for that matter, so does everyone we know on either side of this debate). But we would argue that neither is marriage just about adults. The very fact that this debate over the definition of marriage is so heated is a sign that all of us agree that marriage is different from many other relationships. In truth, marriage connects men, women and children into one institution that society depends upon.

Our transgendered future

    World Magazine: Transgender is the T in LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender). The term assumes a distinction between sex and gender. Whereas ordinarily these words are synonymous, activists for this cause claim that whereas anatomy and chromosomes determine sex, gender pertains to how one identifies and feels about oneself. So though a baby is born, for example, female, its gender—whether boy or girl—is yet to emerge or be chosen. Or so they say.

This is Mindy: And this is how I destroyed her life by making her a porn star

    Life Site News: I must warn you that what I’m about to share with you is very dark. If you are in need of a “pick-me-up,” this story is not for you. For some, this article might be quite depressing. For others, it might be a wake-up call, causing them to think of a side of pornography they’ve never before considered. The latter is my intent. Also note that I have Mindy’s permission, and indeed encouragment, to share her story.

    Public Discourse: Governor Rick Perry of Texas recently made waves when he was asked whether he thought homosexuality is a disorder. He replied that he was not professionally qualified to pronounce on a medical or mental health question, and then added, “Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that . . . I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.” As you might expect, this answer—which many millions of Americans might honestly have given—caused a bit of a ruckus.
