Defending marriage, in four steps

comment   | print |

stepsA series of five short articles on the Ricochet website (the fifth article is a summary of the rest) last week provide a systematic approach to the same-sex marriage debate. The articles are by Public Discourse editor Ryan T. Anderson, who is also co-author of the recently published book, What Is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense (reviewed on MercatorNet).

Of particular interest is the article, "Monogamy? Exclusivity and Permanence?" in which the public statements of leading marriage redefiners openly avow their intention to overthrow precisely these qualities of marriage -- leaving what?

Hone your understanding of the public purpose of marriage, your arguments.
