Dr. Pat Fagan to Officially Unveil Groundbreaking MARRIpedia


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tomorrow, the Marriage and Religion Research Institute (MARRI) will unveil MARRIpedia, a newly-launched online social science encyclopedia of all matters related to family, marriage, religion, and sexuality. MARRIpedia synthesizes and translates the work of myriad social scientists into concise, issue-specific entries that are intelligible to the lay reader.

Dr. Fagan, Senior Fellow and Director of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute, commented on the release of MARRIpedia:

“At MARRIpedia, we let the data do the talking. We have come to believe and observe that the social sciences well done cannot but illustrate the way God made man. Through observation of the data we have also come to the conclusion that the intact marriage family that worships God weekly is the core strength of the nation, whereas the broken family that does not worship at all is the weakest section of society.  This research will inform policy makers, the media, parents and all those who want to take a proactive role in strengthening the foundation of our nation,” concluded Fagan.

WHO: Dr. Pat Fagan, Senior Fellow and Director of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute
