It is in the interest of tyrants to reduce the people to ignorance and vice. For they cannot live in any country where virtue and knowledge prevail. The religion and public liberty of a people are intimately connected; their interests are interwoven, they cannot subsist separately; and therefore they rise and fall together.

Marriage Still Matters

Ken Connor

Marriage still matters. Historically, marriage – marriage between one man and one woman – has been the foundation of civil society. It is this unique relationship that has produced children, secured the inter-generational transmission of values, provided a solid foundation for the economy and security for women and children, etc. Marriage is and always has been more than the sum of its parts, more than a mere social convention.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
