Dr. Morse at Stanford: "Marriage Without Adjectives"

 

The Stanford Daily reports:

The newly established Stanford Anscombe Society (SAS) hosted its first event, titled “Marriage Without Adjectives,” on Tuesday night. Former Hoover Fellow Jennifer Roback Morse, the founder of the Ruth Institute, delivered the kickoff talk.

... Morse’s 40-minute speech prompted an active question and answer session. She emphasized the importance of bringing the dialogue to youth at college campuses.

Morse defined marriage as “an organic, naturally occurring social institution” with the sole purposes of  “sexual activity, spousal love and child rearing.”

“Marriage is the linchpin of society…and young people need accurate information about the big picture,” she said.
