In Defense of Marriage

As I conclude this series of posts on same-sex marriage, I want to leave our readers with some positive things they can do to defend traditional marriage. First, we need to educate ourselves when it comes to same-sex attractions (SSA). I’ve recommended various resources, organizations, and websites throughout this series. If you need somewhere to […]

Attractions and Distractions

This past week, I’ve posted a series of brief columns on the same-sex marriage issue. The reader will notice that I frequently use the term “same-sex attractions” (SSA). That’s intentional.

Over the course of the coming week, I’m going to lay out for our readers what I consider to be the “five pillars” of the case for same-sex marriage.   The first pillar on which the case for same-sex marriage is based is the claim that homosexuality is a genetically determined trait. The cause of the […]
