Dear Friends:

In recent days, major media outlets have been highlighting politicians who, while once supportive of marriage as it always has been known, now support same-sex "marriage." They are doing so in much the same enthusiastic way as the sports pages keep a tally of basketball teams during "March Madness."

Well, Christian teaching has never been a popularity contest. Rather, it has been about affirming, applying, and standing upon what the Bible teaches. That includes marriage, designed by God as the union of one man and one woman, for life, a teaching confirmed by Jesus Himself (Mark 10:7-8).

My distinguished colleague Ken Blackwell, who has served in many leading public roles including U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Human Rights Commission, a few days ago wrote a counterintuitive and very persuasive op-ed titled, "The illiberalism of assailing traditional marriage." Take a few minutes to read Ken's piece and learn why redefining marriage will hurt families and children in profound ways.

Basketball is one thing, but let's not bring "madness" to marriage. Instead, let's do all we can to make sure that the intact, stable family - headed by a husband and a wife - becomes once again the treasured norm for all Americans.
