Publisher's Summary

The Supreme Court has issued a decision, but that doesn't end the debate. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled, Americans face momentous debates about the nature of marriage and religious liberty. Because the Court has redefined marriage in all 50 states, we have to energetically protect our freedom to live according to conscience and faith as we work to rebuild a strong marriage culture.

In the first book to respond to the Supreme Court's decision on same-sex marriage, Ryan Anderson draws on the best philosophy and social science to explain what marriage is, why it matters for public policy, and the consequences of its legal redefinition.

Attacks on religious liberty - predicated on the bogus equation of opposition to same-sex marriage with racism - have already begun, and modest efforts in Indiana and other states to protect believers' rights have met with hysterics from media and corporate elites. Anderson tells the stories of innocent citizens who have been coerced and penalized by the government and offers a strategy to protect the natural right of religious liberty.

Anderson reports on the latest research on same-sex parenting, filling it out with the testimony of children raised by gays and lesbians. He closes with a comprehensive roadmap on how to rebuild a culture of marriage, with work to be done by everyone.

The nation's leading defender of marriage in the media and on university campuses, Ryan Anderson has produced the must-hear manual on where to go from here. There are reasonable and compelling arguments for the truth about marriage, but too many of our neighbors haven't heard them. Truth is never on the wrong side of history, but we have to make the case. We will decide which side of history we are on.

The secular argument that won me over.

This is a great audio of a very readable book for the non-academic, like myself. What I love about this book the most is that it doesn't lean on religious arguments. From premise to conclusion, this book lays out a strong secular case for why traditional marriage is matters, despite the recent SCOTUS decision. It's the argument that took me from a libertarian view of marriage to government promotion of traditional marriage.
