The (Sexual Revolutionary) Beat Goes On

February 18th, 2015 Comments off

This article was first published at National Catholic Register on January 14, 2015.

Actor Gary Sinise and Fox TV personality Brett Baier withdrew from their planned participation in a conference of Roman Catholic business leaders, under pressure from the Gay Lobby. You might think this is just another episode of the gay lobby intimidating people they don’t like. But there is more at stake here. This episode is part of the pattern that has allowed the Sexual Revolution to continue with minimal resistance. What’s at stake here is whether ordinary people are allowed to have their own version of their own life stories. Read more…

This article was first published at National Catholic Register on February 13, 2015.

Do you want to come and see Fifty Shades of Grey with me? You know we really shouldn’t be going to see it. But what the heck. It is just a movie. It is perfectly okay. Since we pretty well know the “plot” will drag in a movie like this, here are a few things for us to think about.

1. We came to this movie because we expected to be sexually stimulated. Anything else, we tell ourselves, is self-deception. Read more…

23 Hollywood Moms with Same Sperm Donor and One Crazy Vacation

It gives a glowing account of 23 Hollywood moms who have used the same sperm donor to conceive children. Given the growing acceptance of sperm donation, I think it’s time we talk about the archaic, polygamous family structure that sperm donation is resurrecting. First I will show what this ancient family structure looks like by drawing from a well known historical reference and creating a diagram of it. Then I will show how the “new” family structure resembles the old when both are rendered according to genetic ties. Then I will compare these with the monogamous natural family structure. Read more…

How to Have a Happy Marriage (Even when You’re Busy with Kids)

February 13th, 2015 Comments off

by Betsy Kerekes, Ruth Institute editor, co-author with Dr. Morse of 101 Tips for a Happier Marriage (Ave Maria Press 2013, Pauline Publications India 2014) and the blog Parentingisfunny.wordpress.com.

Marital satisfaction tends to take a dip once that first baby comes home from the hospital (or out of the bathtub, birthing center, etc.). This shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. Let’s face it, kids, particularly newborns, are difficult. Anyone who says otherwise is either lying, or a grandparent. But you can maintain a happy marriage despite the strains and difficulties on your new life as parents. Here are ten tips for a happier marriage—with children.

1. Remember that love is a decision, not a feeling.

It’s impossible to keep warm fuzzy feelings for your spouse constantly, especially when you have children taking up so much of your time and energy. Just remember that your relationship with your spouse comes first. Period. If you want the best for your children, and who doesn’t, the success of your marriage is paramount. A google search will render you a dozen different studies all saying the same things about the negative effects of a broken marriage on children. If you want your kids to be happy, keep your spouse happy. Be happy together.

2. Don’t let Robin rule the roost. Read more…

Love and Economics: From Contract to Cooperation

A review of Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse’s book, Love and Economics.

The subject of contracts is not particularly romantic, which is part of the reason I’d like to talk about contracts—and how we might reach beyond them.

In some ways, we’ve come to overly ignore, downplay, or disregard contracts. Across the world, we see grandmaster politicians and planners trying to impose various “solutions” with the flicks of their wands, paying little attention to core features like trust and respect for property rights. Here in America, our government is increasingly bent on diluting or subverting our most fundamental agreements, whether between husband and wife or foreclosed Billy and his bank. Read more…
