Polling on marriage: The american people continue to support preserving marriage as the union of one man and one woman

    The Washington Times: It’s become an article of faith in media reporting that there has been a massive shift in public opinion in favor of same-sex ‘marriage.’ Reporters point to a series of surveys that purport to show growing support for this idea. And it’s certainly what those who wish to redefine marriage want people to believe. However, it’s wrong to suggest that the American people have changed their minds, and there is very strong evidence to show that they haven’t. The definition of marriage remains one of the most hotly contested issues in the country.

Biblical marriage is beautiful

The Supreme Court’s other shoe

    The Washington Times: When the Supreme Court ruled last year in United States v. Windsor that Section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional, it announced that its “opinion and its holding are confined” to those couples “joined in same-sex marriages made lawful by the State.” Because the definition and regulation of marriage has almost exclusively been within the province of the States, the Court noted repeatedly, it violated equal protection for the federal government not to give the same recognition to same-sex marriages sanctioned by a particular state that it gave to heterosexual marriages. On that reasoning, States that choose a different policy judgment about marriage, one that would preserve marriage as an institution between one man and one woman, should remain free to do so.

Four obnoxious things about Terry Gross’ same-sex marriage Hillary Clinton interview

    The Federalist: “Yesterday NPR’s Terry Gross won accolades from the political and media establishments for her interview of Hillary Clinton. And Hillary Clinton was disparaged by the same people for how she handled this interview. And as much as it kind of makes me die inside to say it, Hillary Clinton handled this interview really well — if you’re assuming she wants to run for president of an America that does not uniformly march in lock-step with the folks inhabiting most newsrooms.”

How dads affect their daughters into adulthood

    Family Studies: Conversations about the importance of fathers usually revolve around sons: how boys benefit from having a positive male role model, a consistent disciplinarian, and a high-energy roughhousing partner on their way to pursuing career and family success in adulthood. But as recent research shows, fathers also affect the lives of their young adult daughters in intriguing and occasionally surprising ways.
