Alan Carlson in Australia

Alan Carlson is still doing his customary brilliant job in defending the natural family.  Unsurprisingly, the author of this blog particularly appreciated this bit:

Over two hundred years ago, the French statesman Louis de Bonald ― also sometimes called the first social scientist ― explained why the state had a vital interest in each new marriage.  As he wrote in his 1801 book, On Divorce:

“Political power only intervenes in the spouse’s contract of union because it represents the unborn child, which is the sole object of marriage, and because it accepts the commitment made by the spouses … under its guarantee to bring that child into being [and to raise it well].”

Nothing of significance has changed since:  natural marriage is for the good of the children, which every healthy government need acknowledge.
