Pascal said, “People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive.” So-called marriage “equality” is attractive. Who could be against equality?
Disagreements and projections abound in the dialogue about marriage and its redefinition to include same-sex couples. But both sides agree on one issue: redefining marriage significantly jeopardizes religious freedom—the first liberty upon which our nation was founded.
Is it too much to ask that the focus of this Sunday be on football and not on “gay rights”?
Well, it's finally over. After 18 months of intense political conflict, the American people chose to give President Obama another four years at the helm. Not surprisingly, there is a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking happening within the ranks of the GOP.
Next week voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington will vote on whether to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples. Given that there are good people on both sides of this issue, how are we to explain their opposing views?
France plans to ban the words “mother” and “father” in legal language concerning marriage in that country. The goal is to further communicate the message that “marriage is a union of two people, of different or the same gender.” But the result is certain to be more children without mothers or without fathers in the home.
Culture Challenge of the Week: Poll-Driven ‘Principles’

When President Obama recently completed his “evolution” on homosexual marriage, he ambushed not only some of his friends, but the majority of Americans who still hold to the truth of heterosexual marriage.

On Saturday, May 19, the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) officially came out and declared their support for same-sex marriage. According to USA TODAY, the organization saw the issue has comparable to civil rights.
A lot of cultural commentators are confused these days. They believe that people’s views on same sex marriage are solely a reflection of their religious beliefs. Nothing could be further from the truth. Actually, some things could be further from the truth – like saying that Al Sharpton has integrity or that Dan Savage has class. But you get the point. The same sex marriage debate is about politics.
Just how bad a blunder was President Obama's forced gay marriage endorsement?
Is it panic time at Obama headquarters in Chicago? You might get that impression from watching events -- and the polls -- over the past few weeks.

Oh, the irony of it all. For the past two years, the Republican establishment has been insisting that the only effective way to beat President Obama in 2012 is to set contentious social issues aside and focus like a laser on the economy.
