I enjoyed (maybe a little too much) listening to our married podcasters defending monogamy.  I thought they’d hurt themselves climbing the moral high ground too fast.  But, our fearless leaders did highlight an important point–the typical MSM have been awash in ‘alternative lifestyles’ and ‘monogamy outdated’ articles.  I wondered why?  I realize it’s coming up […]

You must also know that if any pope were to give priests license to enter into carnal wedlock, he himself would be damned by God with a sentence, as would be applied to someone who had committed a great sin, and who by right should have his eyes plucked out, his lips cut off, with […]

To add something new to this imbroglio it now appears that under California law Mozilla has in all likelihood committed a crime by their actions in this affair. Under California law it is blatantly illegal to fire an employee because he has donated money to a political campaign.  This rule is clearly set forth in […]

Gay Marriage Equal Signs As Displays Of Groupthink And Weakness

 

When Brandon Eich was forced out as Mozilla CEO because he refused to recant his position against same-sex marriage, responses were all over the map. A writer at Slate actually tried to justify the termination as a good thing. Libertarian Nick Gillespie said he was “ambivalent” about Eich’s removal but that Eich’s resignation simply “shows how businesses respond to market signals.” And even conservatives weren’t rallying behind Eich on the grounds that marriage is an institution designed around sexual complementarity so much as by saying that even if he’s wrong, conscience should be protected.

They’re all wrong, I argue in “The Rise Of The Same-Sex Marriage Dissidents.” I just wanted to share it here since Ricochet has been so formative in changing my views on this topic. “I’ve evolved,” is how you say that, I guess. And I don’t evolve on much, so that’s saying something.

A ceremony of my church includes this passage: “The union of husband and wife in heart, body, and mind is intended by God for their mutual joy, for the help and comfort given one another in prosperity and adversity, and, when it is God’s will, for the procreation of children and their nurture in the knowledge […]

Here and here are links:   For those of you who missed the story, it was discovered that the recently promoted CEO Eich made a $1000 contribution in 2008 supporting a ballot measure to ban gay marriage.  There was a large ruckus on twitter and the internet.  Eich responded.  However, the damage was done.  He’s […]

Former Ricochet member RJ Moeller of Hashtag Productions drew my attention to this article at Family Studies. If, like me, you thought measuring divorce rates was a simple matter, you would apparently be wrong: To oversimplify a complex story: the United States has been lousy at collecting data. Individual counties may keep pretty good track […]
