Why shouldn’t the definition of family be broadened and modernized? What harm could be done by two consenting adults who love one another coming together to create a binding union? In this succinct analysis of the issue, Dr. James Dobson presents a compelling case against the legalization of "marriage" between homosexuals, and the dire ramifications our nation could face:
- Same-sex marriage will destroy the fundamental principles of marriage, parenthood, and gender.
- Families will be increasingly unstable as their definition expands to incorporate multiple "moms" or "dads."
- Legalization of gay marriages will lead to polygamy and other alternatives to one-man/one-woman unions.
- The divorce rate will be even higher, making our children less safe.
Marriage Under Fire provides the foundations of a battle plan for the preservation of traditional values in our nation. Our response could not be clearer. The well-being of the family, and thus our nation, hangs in the balance. Now is the time to speak out in defense of marriage and the family.
