  61. Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage: What is at Stake?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    There are good people on either side of the same-sex marriage debate. Unfortunately, however, it has been one of the most divisive issues in society. Opponents of same-sex marriage perceive the other side as part of a cabal of gay activists and social-engineering judges and politicians, intent on making a mockery of important social values. Proponents of same-sex marriage often perceive the other side as "homophobic" bigots or religious fundamentalists who want to deprive gay or lesbian couples of a right enjoyed by others because they hate homosexuals. The debate over same-sex marriage has divided people who share common values and beliefs on many fundamental questions--war and peace, economic security, democracy versus the increasingly anti-democratic and repressive nature of American society. This divisive debate cripples the ability of ordinary Americans to unite around the things that we agree on.

    Arresting young children for a crayon drawing, not unlike the games of hangman we once all played, is the ultimate meaning and logic of Zero Tolerance.

    Resource Type: Book
  67. Power in Play
    Reclaiming Play in the Serious Work of our Lives

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1986   Published: 1987
    For too long, our culture has 'viewed play as appropriate only for children, and in some rare instances for adults (when they are artists, nursery school teachers, or living out their retirement years). When we dare to question the Protestant Work Ethic and affirm both what feels good, and what works for us, it seems to me that play must be reclaimed from childhood memory and made a reality in everyday adult life.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    A State which had genuine concern for its children would have responded to the report by taking decisive action to remove the Catholic bishops as patrons of primary schools. Three thousand of 3,200 primaries in the Republic have bishops as patrons - with the power to hire and fire and complete control over the school's 'ethos'. No less appropriate category of men could be imagined to have such power over the moral formation of children.

  84. What Is a Liberal to Do?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Seventy percent of African-American voters in California voted for Proposition 8 to ban same-sex marriage. Liberals, however, say that opposing same-sex marriage is a form of bigotry no better than the racism of those who wanted inter-racial marriage to be illegal and Jim Crow laws to remain. How, liberals wonder, can African-Americans--the victims of racism-- switch from being champions of equality to champions of bigotry? It is a true paradox. Liberals, by definition, support the victims of racism. But how can they do that when those very same victims are bigoted against gays? Oh dear! What is a liberal to do?
  85. Why They Voted For Obama But Against Same-Sex Marriage
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    People who think that it is wrong to make same-sex marriage legal because it would give social approval to the practice of using sperm or egg donors to conceive children who will, by design, not know their biological mother or biological father are, according to liberals, "hateful and bigoted." In the world of these liberals, placing the welfare of children before the desires of adults is "hateful and bigoted."
