What is Marriage? A Definition from Some Scholarly Types
If you regularly read the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, the following article will be old news to you. For the other 99.9% of us, it might be a surprising read.
It is encouraging to see two scholars from Princeton and one from Notre Dame give such a clear argument for the traditional definition of marriage. Yes, these are traditionally Catholic schools, but to see their study so prominently published in a Harvard Journal gives me quite a lift.
Please note that the paper is not light and fluffy. To read it, you'll probably need to put your thinking cap on. And some time to focus. A tweed jacket and a pipe wouldn't hurt either.
But for me, a guy who graduated from college with a degree in sociology, it was a satisfying read. And it might just give you a few ways to articulate why traditional marriage is worth fighting for.
