Microeconomic Behavioral Responses to the Marriage Penalty and Reforms for the 21st Century

    NCPA Policy Digest: There are strong financial disincentives for couples to be married in the status quo. Rather than promoting the institution of marriage, the federal tax code imposes heavy burdens on married couples that encourage couples to choose cohabitation as an alternative, say Jason J. Fichtner, a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center, and Jacob Feldman, a research analyst at George Mason University.

Delaware: Residents turn out to support Sussex council prayer

    Cape Gazette: Councilman Vance Phillips, R-Laurel, who has been among the staunchest supporters of opening meetings with The Lord’s Prayer, told Betts council members have been placed in a precarious position. He said if council fails to abide by the court injunction and recites The Lord’s Prayer anyway, council members could be arrested or the county could be fined. “People tell me we should be willing to go to jail for this,” he said. “But what if the fine is $10,000 a day? What would you have us do?” he asked. He didn’t get an answer. The county’s lead attorney, Everett Moore, cut in before Betts could respond, reminding Phillips that the issue was not an agenda item and could not be discussed.

Abstinence: Why Sexual Integrity Isn’t Out-of-Date

    LifeNews: A book about sex by J. Budziszewski uses natural law arguments to persuade young adults of the moral benefits of purity . . . But what about those who think that morality requires a bit more of us? How can they persuade young people that reserving sexual intimacy for marriage is the right thing to do? In his book On the Meaning of Sex, popular author and political philosopher J. Budziszewski attempts to make such an argument on the basis of human nature and natural law. He begins with an anecdote from teaching.
