“The Great Societal Shift: 53% of Americans Currently Support Gay Marriage” | The Urban Twist

    The Urban Twist: Despite the legal progress the United States and other countries have made towards achieving marriage equality, adamant protesters of same-sex marriage still voice the belief that gay marriage ruins the sanctity of traditional marriage. The nonprofit organization known as the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) which was formerly known as the Alliance Defense Fund, revealed its opposition of gay marriage in a quote found on their website about the current Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) hearing of the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA): “God ordained marriage to be between one man and one woman. Unfortunately, some groups are now attempting to replace marriage with “anything goes” arrangements. This disregard for marriage and its true purpose threatens to destroy this institution, to the detriment of future generations.”

Boy Scouts Vote To Redefine Timeless Values

    OnMyHonor.net: What’s Next

    “It is with great sadness and deep disappointment that we recognize on this day that the most influential youth program in America has turned a tragic corner. The vote today to allow open and avowed homosexuality into Scouting will completely transform it into an unprincipled and risky proposition for parents. It is truly a sad day for Scouting. The Boy Scouts of America has a logo that bears the phrase ‘Timeless Values.’ Today, the BSA can no longer use this phrase in good faith. It has demonstrated by its actions that the organization’s values are not timeless, and instead they are governed by changing tides of polls, politics and public opinion.

What our words tell us | David Brooks at Daily Camera

    David Brooks at NY Times: About two years ago, the folks at Google released a database of 5.2 million books published between 1500 and 2008. You can type a search word into the database and find out how frequently different words were used at different epochs. The database doesn’t tell you how the words were used; it just tells you how frequently they were used. Still, results can reveal interesting cultural shifts.

Boy Scouts at the Brink: Vote Tomorrow

    OnMyHonor.net: Meeting Thursday in Grapevine, Texas, the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America will decide whether it will retain or revise its historic membership policy on the issue of homosexuality. The 1,400 voting members of the B.S.A. National Council hold the future of one of America’s most iconic organizations in their hands. In reality, they are not only deciding a matter of membership policy. They are actually deciding the future of the entire organization.

Same-Sex “Marriage”: Why We Don’t Fight

    John Zmirak at Aleteia: Marriage is under assault, and in just the last month, we have seen some surprising, depressing concessions: Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi opined to the press that Christians could accept “civil unions” of same-sex couples. Former Republican vice-presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan told a town hall meeting in Wisconsin that while he still opposed homosexual “marriage,” he supported the “right” of same-sex couples to adopt children. Evangelical Christian pastors, afraid of alienating younger members of their churches, have begun to back away from this issue. Even Catholic and Evangelical leaders whose views are orthodox have become reluctant to “pick this hill to die on.” A gifted writer and Catholic priest confessed to me, “I have held off on commenting on the marriage issue. I’m just too frightened of the backlash.”
