With the national debate on so-called “Same Sex Marriage” raging everywhere you turn (Facebook, newspapers, websites, television, etc.), I’m reminded of the pertinent question that is often ignored.
“What is the essential, public purpose of marriage?”
The answer to the above question is absolutely crucial, and if you have not thought through this question thoroughly, then you should because all other considerations are ancillary.
I want to introduce you to a presentation by Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, who poses this essential question and provides a clear answer, followed by a detailed analysis.
I believe that once we answer this fundamental question and consider the answer thoughtfully, we’ll come to see clearly why so-called “Same Sex Marriage” has never, before just recently, existed in the course of human civilization.
If you’d like to go deeper, I encourage you to read “Rebuttals to arguments for same-sex marriage – Examining the most common arguments for redefining marital unions …and understanding why they are flawed” by Brandon Vogt.
