Thanks so much for posting a link to that fine article by Sherif Girgis, Ryan Anderson, and Robert George on how we should respond to challenges to the meaning of marriage. The articulate and immensely reasonable arguments of this team of brilliant and even-tempered men are sorely needed voices of sanity in a culture that is blinded by a well-meaning, but misguided, sentiment and is desperately confused about the uniqueness of man and woman. These writers are so well-respected that even Justice Alito cited their book, What is Marriage?, in his dissenting opinion.

What I particularly like about Girgis, Anderson, and George is their ability to speak about the nature of marriage without any reference to religion whatsoever. Everyone should read their work before making up his or her mind about how marriage should be defined. And those of us who hold to the traditional understanding of marriage must take it upon ourselves to do our homework so that we can speak intelligently and compassionately in non-sectarian terms. If we are cowed into silence or are convinced that loss is inevitable, then loss will be inevitable. I'd go so far as to suggest that Catholics have a serious obligation to educate themselves on this matter as so much is at stake for the future our Church and our nation and our families. This is particularly true in states like Ohio, in which our state's definition of marriage is likely to end up on the ballot.

Ideally we would all read their book ( an earlier edition may be read online) , but we can still get a good understanding of their thesis by following the links in the article you posted.
