by Steve MacDonald April 23, 2016

[Bumped- because it came up on today’s GrokTALK!: Originally posted Feb 9th, 2012] The short-lived Komen for the Cure controversy over funding for Planned Parenthood ignited more than a few debates in the verse, more of them about abortion as it turns out than breast cancer screening.

I’ve made the point a time-or-two that the same sex marriage debate was never about marriage unless by marriage you mean it’s destruction as an institution.  Marriage is a leading cause of children and children are a leading cause of families, personal responsibility, and even a tendency toward more conservative principles.  That is why the […]
