"For government to simply turn aside as the forces of secular hedonism destroy it would be slow motion suicide for our civilization."
Government is the easiest tool for hedonists to use in destroying marriage, which is why we should get government out of the business of selling marriage certificates and, in the process, defining what a marriage is.

For several thousand years, government has done quite a job at protecting marriage. It is only in the last 40-60 years that marriage has been threatened and that threat comes from a libertarian - more accurately libertine - world view of do what you want if it feels good, no matter who it hurts. If we had the guts to stand up to those voices, no matter which party they claim, we'd be a lot better off.
