familiaris consortio

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 08, 2004

Maggie Gallagher recounts her causal conversation with a college student whose parents are divorced and who doesn't see the problem with same-sex marriage:

"What about you?" I asked him. "Do you think you'll matter to your kids?"

Matthew seemed taken aback by the question. Obviously he had never looked at it from that perspective. He thought for a moment and then followed his train of thought to the only logical conclusion -- a train wreck:

"No," he said. "Not really."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
