Defenders of marriage are tolerant

Again and again, California voters have had their voice and their vote on Proposition 8 rejected. Mostly by powerful homosexual marriage activists, judges and sympathizers.

The appeal is court again, and sympathizers of the voters have joined in.

Marriage, “a difficult issue”

A few years ago, the Witherspoon Institute assembled essays from nearly a dozen outstanding scholars in a book that probably slipped under radar at the time: the meaning of Marriage; family state, market, & morals. In the Foreward, University of Chicago professor Jean Bethke Elshtain makes the keen point that “the terms of our public discourse seem poorly equipped to engage in a serious and nuanced discussion concerning the nature and purpose of marriage in society.” Then she asked: “Why is it so difficult to discuss marriage?”

Sometimes, the Proposition 8 battle seems surreal. But then, so do other serious, emotional and intense conflicts playing out in the nation’s courts and city halls and classrooms and media, over what we knew not long ago as core Judeo-Christian traditional values.
