Have you ever heard these questions: “Why are you against equality?” “The institution of marriage is already in disarray—will allowing same-sex couples to marry really make it worse?” “Shouldn’t the government just get out of the marriage business altogether?” “Is my belief that marriage is between a man and a woman a lost cause—am I on the wrong side of history?”
If you have, you are not alone. Are you unsure of how to answer? Perhaps you’ve even wondered, “How do I defend something as basic to me as breathing?” It’s one thing to believe in something. It’s another to defend it.
Don’t lose heart. We have answers to ensure you are able to make a simultaneously compassionate and persuasive case for marriage—no matter what the question may be.
As part of the legal team defending Proposition 8—California’s marriage protection amendment—before the U.S. Supreme Court, Alliance Defending Freedom has helped prepare the best resource you can read to find answers to tough questions surrounding the marriage debate. Our new brochure, “What You Need to Know About Marriage: Questions and Answers Driving the Debate,” has these answers. This informative, easy-to-read brochure was forged with some of our closest allies to engage in the national fight to defend marriage.
No longer should you feel powerless when a friend asks you a “hard” question. Reading this brochure will deepen your own understanding of marriage, why the government cares about marriage, and the consequences of redefining marriage. It will also equip and empower you to speak courageously on the uniqueness and importance of marriage regardless of the audience.
So join countless Americans around the country who are eager to defend marriage and download the brochure today—read it, and then keep it in your briefcase or purse. You never know when you might have an opportunity to engage in a debate on Facebook, bring up a simple point in your Bible Study, help your child with a tough question she is confronting in school, post an informative Tweet, or share the truth with a stranger at the store.
The future of our country, our families, and most importantly, our children, is at a crossroads. It is our God-given responsibility to engage. Join us in defending the very heart and bedrock of society, the unique relationship between a man and a woman that is marriage.
