What Are the Best Arguments for Traditional Marriage? #8 Post of 2012

| December 14, 2012

Post Author: Bill Pratt The citizens of North Carolina voted Tuesday, May 8, 2012, 61% to 39% in favor of adding an amendment to the state constitution that re-affirms the traditional view of marriage between one man and one woman.  Even though this was an overwhelming victory, it still saddens me that so many people […]

What Are the Benefits of Traditional Marriage?

| November 7, 2012

Post Author: Bill Pratt I think that the benefits of traditional marriage are taken for granted among a large portion of the population.  Whenever there is talk of changing the definition of marriage, we must revisit why we have the current definition.  And we must also ask if the current version of marriage is serving […]

| May 7, 2012

Why Should the State Endorse Gay Marriage?

| August 19, 2009

Post Author: Bill Pratt I wrote a post recently about why the state endorses and promotes marriage between a man and a woman.  Simply put, the state needs children and it needs children raised in the ideal environment for them to become productive adult citizens, which is a family headed by a man and a […]

Why Do Civilizations Care about Marriage?

| August 17, 2009

Post Author: Bill Pratt The ultimate reason that virtually every civilization since the dawn of man has recognized and promoted marriage between a man and a woman is because this is the one natural union that produces children.  Yes, marriage is about procreation and every civilization needs to produce children to survive and thrive.  Without […]

What is the Problem with Gay Marriage?

| August 6, 2009

Post Author: Bill Pratt Well, there are many, but Wintery Knight points us to an excellent article written by Robert George that explains some of the issues quite well.  George rightly asserts that we must, as a society, agree on what marriage is before we start re-defining it.  And, it is up to the people […]
