To Renee Jacques at HuffPo: your kids and divorce article was callous and one-sided

June 26th, 2014 Comments off

To Renee Jacques at HuffPo,

I came across your article today:

11 Reasons Your Parents’ Divorce Isn’t So Bad After All

The piece is so callous that at first I wondered if you were joking. Then I realized you weren’t joking.

It’s hard to know where to start in my criticism of your piece, so let’s just dive into the middle:

3. You know to never ignore your emotions and to face your feelings. That way, you can make the hard but important decisions in your life.

“You know to never ignore your emotions….” except your emotions about your parent’s divorce and how confusing it is. Those must be ignored at all costs, so that your parents won’t ever feel bad about their choices. If your feelings make them feel bad, this might jeopardize your standing with them since as a child you’re the vulnerable one.

Or how about this:

4. You begin to realize how much your opinion matters to your parents.

“Your opinion matters to your parents…”  except your opinion about their divorce(s), remarriages, and all the Read more…

Gosnell: “The logic of the abortion license”

April 23rd, 2013 Comments off

by Sheila Liaugminas

Not every abortionist, nor even most, nor maybe even any other abortionist commits the horrific violations of human life that Kermit Gosnell did, the details of which are on the public record in his ongoing trial. But the fact is, every abortionist ends a human life. Read more…

The New York Times has ignored an appalling abuse of human rights in nearby Philadelphia. What explains its indifference to the Kermit Gosnell abortion trial?

by Carolyn Moynihan

One of the most shocking medical malpractice and human rights violations stories in recent US history has been running in a courtroom in Philadelphia for a month but you wouldn’t know that from following NBC, CNN, The New York Times or practically any other major news outlet. The trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell involves a sensational 281-page Grand Jury report and horrific testimonies that should have been making page one headlines the past few weeks, but only in the last few days have most of the country’s major news media paid any attention to it.

April 5th, 2013 Comments off

from Brian Brown:

Thanks to the March and the coverage, I can introduce you this week to some extraordinary people the MSM never want you to meet, so you can see for yourself: the able, intelligent, and extraordinary Next Gen leaders for marriage that are now emerging in this fight:

Meet the young heroes facing down the Goliath forces opposing us!

You know of course our own able and extraordinary Thomas Peters, NOM’s communication director.

He went on MSNBC and fought and held his own in the lion’s den (with God’s help I take it!): Read more…

Not surprisingly, the March for Marriage got little news coverage

April 5th, 2013 Comments off

from Brian Brown of NOM

Cliff Kincaid, Director of the Accuracy in Media Center for Investigative Journalism, accurately notes how dishonestly our movement has been covered by the mainstream media:

Significant news came out of last Tuesday’s March for Marriage demonstration in Washington, D.C. But it didn’t make “news” in the major media. Read more…

What TV news won’t tell you about March for Life

January 26th, 2013 Comments off

From the article: “Mainstream media, take a memo,” she wrote in a tongue-in-cheek column published shortly after the NPR decision, “and frame all news stories this way: Refer to abortion supporters as ‘right to life opponents,’ refer to gun control supporters as ‘gun rights opponents,’ refer to ‘hate speech’ backers as ‘speech rights opponents.’”

“Who wants to be against rights, right?” Barber quipped. Read more…

The Family in America and the Public Welfare: The Other Side of the Story

February 6th, 2012 Comments off

by Robert W. Patterson

Published at on February 5, 2012.

During the last few weeks, the Inquirer and Daily News have had a field day with the journal I edit, The Family in America, deploying scorn, ridicule, and caricature to depict me as an “extremist” unworthy of a political appointment at the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare (DPW). It’s time to tell the other side of the story. Read more…

A noisy week for parenting studies

January 18th, 2012 Comments off

First of all this week, there was a big (about 5,000 observations) sophisticated (University of Chicago Business School) study of bad behavior in little boys. Conclusion: little boys benefit substantially from living with both their biological parents. The second study was a little (78 observations) simplistic (unrepresentative sample, ideologically motivated researchers) of the Quality of Life of the children of lesbian couples. Conclusion: the children of lesbian couples are just as happy and well-adjusted as their peers.  Read more…

What’s wrong with lesbian parenting studies

January 17th, 2012 Comments off

By Michael Worley, First year law student at J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University, and a 2011 graduate of the Ruth Institute It Takes a Family to Raise a Village program.

It is common knowledge that TV reports don’t tell the whole story.  Frequently a group of 75 undecided voters gather to share their responses immediately after a debate.  Such people provide instant commentary that the theorists of network TV may not be able to perceive.  However, these groups tend not to be predictive of overall election results. Random polling via phone calls shows us much clearer results.  Read more…
