Jennifer Roback Morse connects feminism to same-sex marriage and Marxism

This is awesome, and only 15 minutes long.

Here is the full MP3 file.


  • her role in the prop 8 campaign in California
  • the toxic atmosphere around the issue of same-sex marriage
  • the connection between the gay rights and feminism
  • how Marx and Engels viewed marriage, family and parenting
  • the left’s goal to involve the state inside the family
  • the goal of domestic violence laws and social programs
  • the left’s view of sex and sexuality
  • why same-sex marriage requires state coercion of individuals
  • how same-sex marriage affects religious liberty
  • what is the purpose of traditional marriage
  • how fathers stand to lose if same-sex marriage becomes law

Jennifer Roback Morse is fun because she connects these social issues to fiscal issues and liberty. It’s really interesting! One of the best things about her is that she is very much outward-focused. She took a lead role in defending traditional marriage and traditional families in California during the prop 8. She also speaks on campuses to the college students, just like William Lane Craig.

Here are a few more of her lectures:

The first lecture is particularly suitable for stay-at-home mothers, who have a critical role in society during the first 18 months of post-birth child development.

  1. Thanks for the heads-up – I’ll have to check this out when I get home this evening. In the meantime, I’ve got Dr J’s podcast from 18 Oct to listen to on my way home, which also deals with the issue of same-sex marriage.

    As an aside, in my discussions – both on my blog and otherwise – with various pro-gay marriage advocates, there is one thing in common: they all view marriage as no more than a commitment that two people make to each other. On that basis, they are insistent that gays and lesbians have “equal rights” to an institution that they apparently don’t need (as you don’t need marriage to make a commitment to another person)!


    1. The goal of same-sex marriage is to compel affirmation and even celebration from others, and to outlaw any disagreement using things like the Canadian Human Rights Commissions.


      1. Indeed, that is the real goal. Those not versed on the issue are easily sold on the premise that it is only an expression of commitment that is being denied same-sex couples.

        And your wording “compel affirmation” seems a little lukewarm … really it’s “involuntary coercion”, wouldn’t you say?
