Catholic law school launches center for defense of marriage
November 23, 2010
Ave Maria School of Law has announced the founding of the Center for Research on Marriage, Religion and Public Policy. The center is led by Maggie Gallagher, one of the nation’s leading defenders of marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
“It’s important to continue fighting for marriage and family in the political and legal arenas,” says Gallagher. “Truth is truth. If marriage is the union of a husband and wife, because children need a mother and father, we can’t abandon non-Catholic children. We have an obligation in justice, as well as love, to fight against an unjust civil order that redefines marriage and its purposes.”

Will Ave Maria School also counter the annulment mentality which is still rampant in the U.S.? With all the "experts" at tribunals saying we Americans don't understand what marriage entails, all or most of our marriages can be considered invalid if us given enough time to find a sufficient ground to declare it null.
