Little Gary Bauer speaks his mind
Is he unrealized “family?”
Former presidential candidate and diminuitive “family values” champion Gary Bauer is putting his two cents in on Chimpy’s second term social agenda, up now at (WorldNutDaily). He couldn’t help commenting on marriage, of course. In his own twisted way, he makes the case for gay civil marriage as a stabilizing force, then he dismisses our relationships as “disordered and destructive lifestyles.” Pea-brain.
Regardless of which side of the Social Security debate you are on, real “social security” â€“ that which truly makes society secure â€“ has less to do with retirement benefits and financial entitlements than it does with protecting and promoting our most vital social institutions.
While it was encouraging to hear the president, during last week’s State of the Union address, clearly reaffirm his support for a constitutional amendment to protect marriage, and promote the sanctity of life, I couldn’t help but wonder whether we are truly living up to our “responsibility to our children to honor and pass along the values that sustain a free society.”
…The president also said: “… marriage is a sacred institution and the foundation of society …”
Empirical studies demonstrate that married people live happier, healthier and longer lives than their single counterparts. Moreover, we know that children fare much better when raised by their married biological parents.
In spite of the evidence, our nation doesn’t seem so committed to marriage. Too many marriages today fail and the very meaning of the institution is under constant attack by homosexual activists who want to redefine it in order to affirm their own disordered and destructive lifestyles. Can a society that treats its most vital institution with so little respect really be considered secure?
