Catholic Action for Faith and Family Founder and President, Thomas McKenna, appeared on San Diego UT-TV to discuss the issue of the Supreme Court and same sex “marriage.”
Please keep in mind that those seeking a redefinition of marriage are arguing not only against established legal precedent but also the view of the enlightened men who actually wrote the U.S. Constitution. This is well reflected in the definition of marriage found in An American Dictionary of the English Language, published by Noah Webster in 1828. Webster was a contemporary of the founding fathers and his definition reflects the common understanding of marriage that existed at the time of the birth of our nation and throughout its history. Here is that original and still timely definition:
Marriage: The act of uniting a man and woman for life; Marriage is a contract both civil and religious, by which the parties engage to live together in mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. Marriage was instituted by God himself for the purpose of preventing the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes, for promoting domestic fidelity, and for securing the maintenance and education of children.
