Social Conservative Review: An Insider's Guide to Pro-Family News October 29, 2015

Yesterday, Dr. Pat Fagan, Director of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute (MARRI), unveiled a new online encyclopedia of social science, MARRIpedia, at a plenary session at the World Congress of Families meeting in Utah.

MARRIpedia is composed of articles on all matters related to family, marriage, religion and sexuality. This new resource synthesizes and translates the work of myriad social scientists into concise, issue-specific entries that are intelligible to the researcher, student, and lay reader. As research continues to emerge on the intricate relationships of family and religion within society, MARRIpedia will consolidate that research in pertinent entries on an ongoing basis.

"The release of MARRIpedia is the culmination of many years of work compiling and analyzing research by some of the world's most respected social scientists," said Fagan. "MARRIpedia, a collation of their work, especially on marriage, family and religion, demonstrates the effectiveness of God's pattern for human relationships and behavior."

On November 18, FRC will be hosting a presentation by Dr. Fagan in which he will introduce MARRIpedia.  More details will follow, but we hope you will be able to join us, in person or online, for this important event.

Families matter, more than we often know.  MARRIpedia contains the proof.

P.S. In case you missed it, be sure to watch U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers' October 28 FRC lecture on "The Role of Congress in Protecting American Values and Life." As she put it, "our Founders believed every person was made in the image of God," and her comments explain why this bedrock conviction matters.
