Book Description: As the debate escalates over same-sex marriage and a constitutional marriage amendment, you typically hear about people being either for or against the issue. We rarely, however, hear concrete reasons why same-sex marriage is or is not a good idea. Using current social science research, Glenn T. Stanton and Dr. Bill Maier offer such a case against same-sex marriage and parenting in their book ''Marriage on Trial: The Case Against Same-Sex Marriage and Parenting''. Using a question-answer format, they provide answers to the issues at the center of the debate, including: How does homosexual marriage threaten your family? Do we have the right (or ability) to redefine marriage so it is elastic enough to include any grouping of adults, regardless of gender? What is the public purpose of marriage? Dont children just need loving, caring parents, regardless of gender? Stanton and Maier provide clear counter-arguments to those who advocate gay marriage, and they make the well-reasoned case that legalizing this arrangement will very likely be harmful to the larger community and the next generation.
