Keep Defending Marriage: Resources


Well, it has happened. The Supreme Court of the United States legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states in one fell swoop. Just like that, in the few moments it takes for news to be passed around, our country has been entirely changed. Just like in 1973 with the legalization of abortion.

And just like with abortion, the fight is not over, and we will still win.

This fight will take us a long time, as it is with abortion, but when did time ever stand in the way of God and his Church?

To help the fight, here is a collection of articles with original arguments against same-sex marriage, some religious, some purely scientific.

The Witherspoon Institute, Dear Justice Kennedy: An Open Letter from the Child of a Loving Gay Parent

MIT, The Secular Case Against Gay Marriage

spike!, The Iron Fist in the Velvet Glove of Gay Marriage (this one by an atheist)
