The Effects of Same-sex "Marriage" on Children's Mental Health

While social scientists are busy faking studies to show growing support for redefining marriage, or designing studies with a small number of participants who have an interest in the outcome of the study, it’s striking to note what they are not studying: the mental health impact on students of the cultural and media movement to […]

Jeb Bush Stands Up For Right Not To Be Coerced

The beginning stages of the presidential campaign are starting to bring the views of the various candidates into focus. Jeb Bush recently told CBN that he supports the right of a Christian small business owner to decline to provide services for a same-sex ‘wedding.’ He correctly understands that people ought to remain free to exercise […]

The Real Revelations from the Faked Same-sex Marriage Study

An op-ed in The American Spectator reviews muted media reaction to the disclosure that a widely publicized study claiming that a gay canvasser speaking to a voter at their home would produce remarkable and long-lasting change in support of same-sex ‘marriage’ was faked. They note that the media’s coverage of the scandal was tepid, especially […]

Warning from Canada: Do Not Redefine Marriage

Many same-sex marriage advocates continue to falsely present the redefinition of marriage as simply providing respect and recognition to loving same-sex couples, with no consequences for anyone else. But as we have seen with the frequent attacks against supporters of traditional marriage – bakers, florists, and others – this has already been proven to be […]

The War on Free Speech

Kirsten Powers has a new book that outlines the agenda and strategy of the same-sex marriage lobby to suppress free speech throughout the country. The American Unity Fund seems to be spearheading this attack by exhibiting it’s ability to sway policy against the American people. As Stella Morabito reports via The Federalist: Powers has dubbed […]

There is Always Hope for Marriage

Marriage has been in a free fall for several decades, but new research shows that the tide is ready to turn. Over at The Federalist, marriage scholar Dr. Brad Wilcox makes the case that despite falling marriage rates, the institution is poised to make a comeback: Over the last half century, marriage has taken quite a […]

False Claim: Religious Groups Don’t Focus on Poverty

The other day, we shared President Obama’s demand that pastors spend more time talking about ending poverty and less time on “divisive” issues such as same-sex ‘marriage’ and abortion. The president was repeating a claim made by other liberal commentators who believe that pastors are “obsessed” with social issues. An op-ed in the Washington Post […]

Data Faked by Same-sex Marriage Researchers

Last year, the media was awash in stories reporting what was considered a major study that “proved” that once people had a conversation at their home with a same-sex canvasser, their minds were changed on whether same-sex ‘marriage’ should be accepted. Further, the study claimed this was such a profound tactic, that follow up research […]

Obama Criticizes Religious Groups for Refusing to Change Their Stance on Marriage

President Obama believes that christian churches should focus less on maintaining allegiance to their position on “divisive” issues such as life and marriage, and instead focus on issues such as alleviating poverty. The irony is that President Obama’s administration has done more than any other administration in history to pursue divisive policies such as abortion […]

Justice Ginsburg’s Bias

In another display of judicial arrogance and bias, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg once again officiated at a same-sex ‘wedding’ over the weekend, this time perhaps hinting that the Court will find that such ‘marriages’ are required by the Constitution. As reported by New York Times, Ginsburg did not clarify why she emphasized the […]

Speech by NOM's Brian Brown during SCOTUS Oral Arguments on Marriage

On the morning that the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the case that could become the Roe v. Wade of marriage, a crowd of marriage supporters and those seeking to redefine marriage gathered on the steps of the Court. Ironically, as lawyers for same-sex couples were calmly assuring the justices that redefining marriage […]

Parents Shouldn't Provide What is Best for Their Children?

There are proponents in academia who have suggested that parents who educate their children to the best of their ability, is “unfair” to other children who do not receive the same opportunity. As ridiculous as this idea seems, it is an honest, though outlandish, theory that some want put into practice. Adam Swift (Prof. at […]

Mothers and Fathers Are Not Interchangeable

“If same-sex marriage is constitutionalized, the message the law will send is that the gender of parents becomes valueless, since any two adults will do.” – Jenet Erickson  In marriage and parenting, both mothers and fathers (as a couple) are necessary for the creation and rearing of a child, as well as for the health […]

Controversy in Utah: Debate About Marriage is No Longer Permissible

The “controversy” being orchestrated in Utah against those who signed onto a brief by scholars supporting marriage is indicative of the new direction of same-sex marriage activists: they are attempting to shut down debate altogether. It’s no longer acceptable in their eyes to have a civil debate about the importance of marriage, or about the […]

Should We Accept the Consequences of Religious Freedom?

With any freedom, you must take the good with the bad, and religious freedom is no exception: Is religious freedom desirable? Many Americans will quickly answer without thinking through the implications of their response. Respecting any type of freedom often comes with undesirable consequences. By favoring freedom of speech, you are protecting the right of […]
