Julaine Appling is President of Wisconsin Family Council and Wisconsin Family Action. They address cultural and legislative issues that impact the state’s most valuable natural resource—traditional families. They work toward advancing Judeo-Christian principles and values by strengthening and preserving marriage, family, life and liberty. This organization is at the forefront of fighting to preserve marriage in Wisconsin.
Imagine a situation where a judge, by the single stroke of a pen, ignores the will of a 1.6 million citizen majority who legally voted for a constitutional amendment.
This is exactly what happened late last week when Judge Barbara Crabb ruled Wisconsin’s marriage protection amendment unconstitutional.
Why should the government seemingly be more interested in ‘loving and committed relationships’ absent the future generations that are the result of heterosexual marriage? How can the state define a relationship as ‘marriage’ absent the conjugal aspect? What does this mean for the polyamorist movement? These are just a few points that Julaine discusses with Vic as she takes a look at this latest attack on marriage in our nation.
