When I read the news accounts of the fall of Elliot Spitzer and the infidelity of the new governor, as well as the other stories that re-surfaced about immorality in our culture like New Jersey Governor McGreevey "coming out of the closet,” and others, and the negative consequences that accompany such behavior, I realized there was one common denominator, a root cause for all this chaos: the devaluation of the institution of marriage. If these men had valued the institution of marriage, they would have been less likely to pursue such destructive lifestyles. They would have understood that,

" Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” -Hebrews 13:4

This is the very reason we, at the Marriage and Family Savers Institute, have devoted ourselves to the fight to preserve marriage. You see, there are far-reaching implications that go beyond the pursuit of our own personal happiness. I would even go so far as to say that most of the societal dysfunction in our nation is rooted in the failure of the institution of marriage. One of the very purposes of marriage is to control men! That might sound somewhat crass and simplistic to the intellectual elites of our day, but it is nevertheless true. Where the institution of marriage has been devalued and considered common, instead of revered as a holy institution, you find every kind of immorality and social disorder. Men –and women- are out of control!

One can trace the history of the decline of the institution of marriage beginning with no fault divorce laws in the early 70s and see a corresponding decline in societal order to this very day.

Rather than cursing the darkness, however, we must work together to light a candle by elevating the institution of marriage back to its rightful place in our society, beginning in our own homes. “Marriage should be honored by all –by all! Let’s start a movement by taking marriage seriously. Let’s reject easy divorce, cohabitation and the redefining of marriage by gay rights activists, and let’s hold up marriage as God intended it to be: sacred and holy. Let’s work to keep it undefiled beginning in our own marriages, and talking it up with our neighbors and friends. Let’s start a cultural revival first in our own hearts, then in our marriages, and I guarantee, we will see a national revival of order, peace and prosperity and a renewed American spirit. And our children, and theirs will thank us for it. How about it?

Obama's Words Reveal His Character

Barak Obama recently told a crowd in Pennsylvania that he didn’t want his daughters to be “punished” with a baby if they made a “mistake.”
What does this statement reveal about Obama? First of all, anyone who would equate a baby with “punishment” obviously has no sense of the intrinsic value of every human life, and sees that life only in a utilitarian sense. In other words, a baby can be a gift or a punishment according to the judgment of the adults in control. With this line of thinking, one may see an elderly relative as “punishment” for adult children who didn’t plan adequately for their parents’ old age, and may subsequently feel justified in terminating their lives. This is the same ideology that has produced some of the most terrible genocidal horrors in world history.

Secondly, teaching his daughters that they can get an abortion if they get pregnant will lead to less resistance to the temptation of pre-marital sex. After all, If we make a “mistake” it can be fixed.

In this one statement Obama reveals an evil ideology, poor parental skills and unsound judgment. We need more than that to lead the greatest nation on the face of the earth.
