Hello everyone–hope everyone enjoyed the last “official” weekend of summer (here in the northern hemisphere).
We’ve got some new podcasts to keep you up-to-date on the marriage and life happenings in the news. Dr J spoke recently with Todd Wilkin on Issues, Etc. about several topics: California recently strengthened the requirements governing insurers’ provision for elective abortions, Utah’s polygamy ban is undergoing a court challenge that seems to be getting somewhere, and California’s legislature is also considering a “gay birth certificate” bill, AB 1951. Dr J was also on The Drew Mariani Show to discuss California’s new “yes means yes” consent law in the larger context of the sexual revolution.
Check ‘em out.
Check out our newest podcast–a rebroadcast of Dr. J’s recent interview on Sheila Liaugminas’ show “A Closer Look.” She’s discussing the current marriage situation in the U.S. by skimming the various legal challenges to traditional marriage and the public reaction to them. Dr J also joins Mary Summerhays and Alisa Olson to discuss some grassroots initiatives taking place in Utah: the upcoming Stand for the Family conference and the soon-to-launch Voice for Marriage website.
September 18/19–Stand for the Family in Provo, UT

Our Christian Iraqi brothers and sisters need our help!!
San Diegans, what is happening to Christians in Iraq is unthinkable and wrong, no matter what your religion. If you’re able, please join us at St. Peter’s Chaldean Church to pray and donate to the cause of housing and protecting people forced into homelessness.
