Stanford Student Experiences Intolerance from Liberals Concerning Marriage Conference
by Dave Jolly
Stanford University is a very well-known and highly respected University. Their academic standards are higher than most universities. The school is also known for trying to be a diverse campus that is open to many differing ideologies, however, that reputation is becoming rather tarnished.
In her freshman year at Stanford, Judy Romea found the campus group known as the Stanford Anscombe Society, named after Elizabeth Anscombe, a British philosopher. According to their website:
“The Stanford Anscombe Society (SAS) is a student group that promotes discussion regarding the roles of the family, marriage, and sexual integrity in the lives of Stanford students both now and after graduation. SAS is neither religiously nor politically affiliated, instead basing our positions on human principles. We hold that the family is the key unit of a stable society, and we define the family as one man and one woman bound together by marriage, along with any children that they might have. SAS defines marriage as a union, until death, between one man and one woman. We promote the idea that sexual integrity is necessary for this family unit to be successful.”
“We meet every week to discuss relevant topics, which have included how to foster a healthy dating culture at Stanford, the harmful effects of the hookup culture, and the philosophical case for marriage as a union between one man and one woman.”
“Furthermore, we host speaking events every quarter in which guest lecturers present their work on marriage and the family.”
