The Bankrupt Tactics of Proposition 107 Opponents

Proposition 107 is about keeping marriage between one man and one woman. Opponents use red herrings, scare tactics, exaggerations and misinformation rather than take ownership of their extreme advocacy of gay marriage, a practice the majority of Arizonans oppose. Here’s one example - a sign I passed on my drive...

Vote 'Yes' on AZ Proposition 107

Here's the wake-up call:New Jersey’s highest court today ruled that “there is no fundamental right to same-sex marriage” but gave the legislature six months to create a structure for same-sex couples to receive all the same benefits of marriage.

Once upon a time marriage was ...

Once upon a time, everyone thought that marriage was well defined and absolute in its essential elements, an unshakable institution, tested through time and foundational to an upright and healthy society.

The title of this post, a statement made by J. Gresham Machen, is quoted along with many other notable writers in this post by Theologica on the anti-intellectualism of the evangelical mind.
