Defending Marriage (July 3, 2013)

For Tennesseans, the Supreme Court’s decisions last week on marriage mean that the definition of marriage enshrined in their state constitution is still the same. But before the end of the year, Tennesseans can expect a lawsuit to have that definition declared unconstitutional.

But regardless of what happens, those who support natural marriage need to know how to defend it to their friends. Part of that means making sure opponents provide their own definition of marriage and an explanation for why it should be restricted to just two people.

Contrary to what some want us to believe, marriage is not just a private matter involving the desires of self-interested adults. It promotes our common good by encouraging the optimal environment for the nurturing of children. Go to our website for additional resources that will help you defend marriage.
