Downfall of society
Re: June 25 commentary “Let same-sex couples wed.”
Michael Smerconish of The Philadelphia Inquirer tells a poignant story of two men in a committed 30-year homosexual relationship. What is it about marriage that is so important to a healthy society? That fact that every civilization of any significance owes its success to the nuclear family. It was the unity of the family that strengthened the community and kept it unified.
It was under the auspices of the traditional family that morals and ethics were handed down, and only when the role of the wife and mother are degraded, does that society begin to implode.
Same-sex marriage, no-fault divorces, single-parent homes, unmarried couples living together, broken and dysfunctional families are symptoms of a society sadly devoid of the important role of wife and mother.
If it weren’t for moms and Mom’s apple pies, where would America be today?
