Courage, Love, and Sacrifice in the Fight for Marriage Reality

Jan 6, 2020 by

by Robert P George, Public Discourse: Every time we fail to muster the courage to do what’s right, what God is calling us to do, there is behind that failure a still deeper failure: a failure of love. Author’s note: On January 1, 2020, Ryan T. Anderson and I published a piece in USA Today on the steep costs—personal, societal, political, legal, and moral—of the so-called “progress” on LGBT issues over the past decade.

Decade in review: Marital norms erode

Jan 1, 2020 by

by Ryan T. Anderson and Robert P. George, USA Today: A decade ago, President Barack Obama affirmed that marriage unites a man and woman. So did 45 states and the federal government.

C4M’s analysis of manifestos: the ‘quadlock’ protections

Dec 9, 2019 by

from Coalition for Marriage: Dear marriage supporter, This is the last of our emails highlighting party promises around marriage.

This inevitably means disrupting the ‘quadlock’ of protections created by the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 to stop clergy being compelled to carry out gay weddings. Part of the quadlock specifically excludes Anglican churches from...

C4M’s analysis of manifestos: Marriage Allowance

Dec 3, 2019 by

from Coalition for Marriage: This is the first in a series of emails we’ll be sending in the run-up to the election on 12 December, focusing on manifesto promises that relate to marriage.
