    So he brings up the problem of the welfare state and the unwed mothers as a reason to march for marriage. Yes. We all should encourage woman not to have welfare babies. I agree.

    What does any of that have to do with same sex marriage? I think we should be promoting contraception for premarital sex.

      I am not a fan of Jim DeMint, but give him credit for trying to broaden” the defense of marriage” to something beyond simply being against same-sex marriage. A common view, one which I share, is that heterosexuals have done great damage to the institution of marriage. If the definition and value of marriage hadn’t already changed, the same-sex marriage debate would be impossible.

      As for contraception, the majority of single-parent households involve an adult who is divorced, separated or widowed. The children were born to a married couple, but the marriage didn’t last. So increasing contraception to unmarried persons will have limited effect on the number of single-parent families.
