first_imgheritage.org 13 March 2013AbstractMarriage is based on the truth that men and women are complementary, the biological fact that reproduction depends on a man and a woman, and the reality that children need a mother and a father. Redefining marriage does not simply expand the existing understanding of marriage; it rejects these truths. Marriage is society’s least restrictive means of ensuring the well-being of children. By encouraging the norms of marriage—monogamy, sexual exclusivity, and permanence—the state strengthens civil society and reduces its own role. The future of this country depends on the future of marriage. The future of marriage depends on citizens understanding what it is and why it matters and demanding that government policies support, not undermine, true marriage.Key Points1 Marriage exists to bring a man and a woman together as husband and wife to be father and mother to any children their union produces.2 Marriage is based on the truth that men and women are complementary, the biological fact that reproduction depends on a man and a woman, and the reality that children need both a mother and a father.3 Marriage is society’s least restrictive means of ensuring the well-being of children. Marital breakdown weakens civil society and limited government.4 Government recognizes marriage because it benefits society in a way that no other relationship does.5 Government can treat people equally and respect their liberty without redefining marriage.6 Redefining marriage would further distance marriage from the needs of children and deny the importance of mothers and fathers; weaken monogamy, exclusivity, and permanency, the norms through which marriage benefits society; and threaten religious liberty.http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2013/03/marriage-what-it-is-why-it-matters-and-the-consequences-of-redefining-itlast_img read more

first_imgDear Editor,It is sad that I must use this harsh description, but the unbelievable reality is that President David Granger and his Government left young cyclist, Beyoncé Ross for dead. Mine you, this is a Government I support, voted for in 2015 and will do so again in 2020, given that the other political party is not an option.Yet, I ache to say that the change myself and other desperate Guyanese had voted for is slow and seems almost non-existent, especially when it comes to issues regarding equality to the underprivileged and less wealthy.I was brought to tears, and am still very upset even as I pen this letter at the failure of the Ministry and State entities responsible for the development of sport and athletes in this country. Reports said this young woman was suffering for months, but none of the agencies came to her aid.I blame the Government for being slow to intervene in a situation which was so brilliantly highlighted by the media and still no one in authority moved to act.Now she is dead in the very same week when we are told that Minister Ally is being flown overseas for medical treatment paid for by the State. Clearly here, all men and women are equal but some are clearly more as George Orwell said.Sincerely,Naresh Singhlast_img read more
