Chesterton on Common Sense

December 8, 2012


IN THE entry on why studies regarding children raised in homosexual households should be ignored, a commenter provides a lengthy compendium of relevant quotes by G.K. Chesterton. Here is one:

The child is an explanation of the father and mother and the fact that it is a human child is the explanation of the ancient human ties connecting the father and mother. The more human, that is the less bestial, is the child, the more lawful and lasting are the ties. So, far from any progress in culture or the sciences tending to loosen the bond, any such progress must logically tend to tighten it … This triangle of truisms, of father, mother and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilisations which disregard it.
