    …Democrats/Liberals/Progressives…all of 'em!



    1.No….not racism and slavery….they originated and supported it, until the Republicans pried their slaves away from them.
    Not Russia…..they supported Russia, the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin and the communists from FDR on.
    But….Patriotism, America, the flag, the police, the military, marriage, family, religion, the unborn, …







    2. Religion plus family equals marriage. I say it is a central benefit for society….so why

    Are Liberals Against Marriage?

    3. The continued plunge in the American birthrate, amid prosperity and low unemployment, has finally made fertility a topic that’s O.K. to worry about….there is one key fact about the recent decline in the American fertility rate that inevitably revives, rather than transcends, a long-running right-left argument.

    4. … in the aggregate Republicans marry more and divorce less than Democrats, ideological conservatives are much more likely to be married than ideological liberals, and conservatives are more than twice as likely to describe marriage as something “needed” for “strong families.”

    5. … look at trends within elite progressivism, I don’t think this gap is likely to soon close. And one does not have to regard liberals as the enemies of marriage, in some crude Leninist sense, to see that this gap matters for how our ideological factions regard the institution’s importance, its future, its place in public policy, its continued diminishment or possible revival.



    6. … the question of why marriage has declined so precipitously in the first place still looms over the fertility discussion. And with it comes a longstanding liberal-versus-conservative disagreement about how much to emphasize economic trends versus cultural transformations — or, more tersely, neoliberalism versus cultural liberalism — to explaining the waning of wedlock.

    7. “Barr’s recent speech attacking secular liberals is a somewhat different case: Edsall is right that it represents a more simplistic and partisan take, a view from 1980 that blames social liberalism for family breakdown without much nuance and doesn’t take enough account of social, economic and religious trends since. And Barr speaks for plenty of Republicans, which is why Rubio and Hawley have taken a lot of fire for their attempt at a new pro-family synthesis, in previews of post-Trump debates to come.

    …the right’s why-marriage-declined story is presently contested, complicated, interesting and possibly getting closer to the necessarily complex truth.

    The Democrat Party is a disaffected freak show, supported by know-nothing Millennials.

    Donald Trump.

    married 3 x & has 5 children from his 3 baby mamas. cheated on melania by raw dogging it with a porn star, putting both her & his yet to be born son at risk for all kindsa nasty cooties.

    brought both his 1st trophy wife, & his CONcubine/soon to be the 2nd trophy wife on the same aspen ski vacation & sat by watching the fireworks fly when they crossed paths on the same slope - making a mockery & spectacle of the word 'marriage'.
    ahhhhhhhhhh..........'CONservatives' - the party of family values.:lmao:

    To be a Progressive in good standing, one must oppose all of the values, attitudes and beliefs that made Western Civilization the shining ‘city on the hill.’

    Like marriage and family.



    8. “…liberals tend to have a more nuanced view of why marriage faltered than the right — one that emphasizes the importance of tectonic economic shifts but also acknowledges that “the sexual revolution and the personal autonomy movement had significant costs as well as notable gains.”



    9. I would divide the modern progressive approach to marriage into three distinct phases.

    In the first phase, which covers the 1960s through the 1980s, there was a clear liberal-led attack on the institutional form of marriage as it existed then, on the legal and cultural structure that privileged heterosexual wedlock, pushed couples toward its rules and rituals, and then constrained them from divorce.This assault was undertaken in a spirit of social optimism, in the name of personal empowerment and (eventually) female equality, and infused with a confidence that the old legal and moral structures were simply oppressive, that in an enlightened society most people wouldn’t need normative models of partnering and child rearing to flourish and succeed.”

    Pretty effective in encouraging out of wedlock birth, huh?

    it has everything to do with you starting a thread classifying only 'liberals' being against marriage & what it means to BE married, when your very own president tinkles is a big giant orange man whore who is a big giant failure when it comes to richer or poorer, in sickness & in health, until death does he part from.

    ask ivana. ask marla. & melania probably has her days numbered as well. i know, i know, it's hard to refudiate the facts - but dems the breaks.

    They're definitely against the normal family unit of father, mother and children. That is VERY apparent. (No pun intended.)

    I love it when the mental instability forces you morons to claim something that every sentient individual knows is untrue....such as the claim that Progressives/Democrats/Liberals support family and marriage, traditional values.


    Here's the author of the NYTimes essay saying it, you dunce.
