Kay Hymowitz: As nonmarital births rise, women becoming more likely to plan pregnancies

    Kay Hymowitz at Family Studies: “Liberals presume structural forces—poverty, a dearth of marriageable men, and limited access to contraception and abortion—explain the rise in unmarried childbearing of the past half-century. These factors matter, but only up to a point. There’s no way to understand what’s happened to the family without looking at cultural changes as well. A growing number of Americans view having a child and getting married as two entirely unrelated life choices. We shouldn’t be surprised to find that people actually act on their beliefs.”

Maxie Dunnam: Can we trust the United Methodist Church on marriage?

    Maxie Dunnam at Canon & Culture: “Can we trust the church in its understanding of marriage? If we can’t, then what can we trust the church with? . . . In his teaching, Jesus Christ underscored the importance and sacredness of lifelong marriage between one woman and one man. . . . This is the corporate, and continuing witness of the Church throughout history. We need to keep in mind that how we think must not be restricted to random feelings and even individual interpretation of Scripture. We need to be in harmony with the whole Body of Christ and all the saints now and forever.”
