Ryan T. Anderson in early 2014 at Union University on the nature of marriage and the consequences for redefining it.
Here is his argument in a nutshell:
Marriage is based on:
Redefining marriage does not simply expand the existing understanding of marriage; it rejects these truths.
Marriage is society’s least restrictive means of ensuring the well-being of children.
By encouraging the norms of marriage—monogamy, sexual exclusivity, and permanence—the state strengthens civil society and reduces its own role.
The future of this country depends on the future of marriage.
The future of marriage depends on citizens understanding what it is and why it matters and demanding that government policies support, not undermine, true marriage.
To see these arguments in written form, see Anderson’s essays on Marriage: What It Is, Why It Matters, and the Consequences of Redefining It, and The Supreme Court and the Future of Marriage, and The Social Costs of Abandoning the Meaning of Marriage.
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
Please Speak Up Australia. Defend children and freedom. Say NO to the proposition to change marriage laws.
