At the “Catholic Moral Theology” blog, St. Louis University professor Julie Rubio writes about the Call to a New Marriage Conversation. Professor Rubio, who contributed a wonderful paper to our Does the Shape of Families Shape Faith? project, writes about the Call:
…Catholics could sit out this conversation and continue to channel most of their pro-marriage energy into fighting same sex marriage. But we would be missing an opportunity to build coalitions with people who are deeply concerned about the 40% of children born outside of marriage, the problems caused by the trend away from marriage in the working class, and the effects of cohabitation on children. Wouldn’t it better to come to the table and join the most promising pro-marriage movement of our day?
