About this Episode

So many today misunderstand the public debate about marriage. No matter what your view about marriage, the public debate is about the State’s involvement in marriage, the changing of long held social mores through coercive policy/legislation, and the enforcement or lack of enforcement of basic laws that incentivize healthy families for the sake of the common good of the culture. Understanding that marriage is MORE than a relationship, it’s an institution means that the State can’t be neutral to the basics of marriage while at the same time not taking over the roles that are best played by fathers and mothers for the sake of their children.

Remember, there are two kinds of fire in the world: One that burns and consumes and one that burns and empowers. May God's word and God's love burn brightly in you, giving you the strength to face any fire. Until next time, little embers!
