There’s hardly anything that so threatens to divide our world as today’s marriage debate. And there’s hardly any issue that requires deeper thought, while seeming to undermine it at every turn with sloganeering, accusations of hate and phobia, and feelings-based debate. My purpose here is to try to wrestle this discussion back onto a course where we can actually give it some thought.
My three central series on this topic are
- Same-Sex “Marriage,” Reason, and Religion, in which I explore non-religious reasons for man-woman marriage, as well as why it is that the debate has lined up so strongly along religious lines — even though it’s not necessarily a religious issue at its core
- To Treat One Another As Humans, in which I implore people on both sides of the debate to see one another as what we are: fellow human beings.
- Biblical and Secular Reasons for Man-Woman Marriage, a series begun on April 23, 2013, and likely to continue for many weeks.
Sometimes to lighten things up we hear from “Phil and Alex” as they debate marriage.
Besides that there are these additional core posts on the marriage debate, and these ten most recent posts:
