Christianity and Classical Culture, Episode 1: Getting Marriage Straight

Recorded in the week following the Supreme Court "ruling" in America which was said to show that #lovewins Dr. Fleming discusses marriage from the very beginning of societal relationships, through the age of Christendom, to our present day, and how the Protestant Revolt changed the dynamic of the state's involvement in marriage, and all that we have reaped (and continue to reap to this day) as a result.

    I really enjoyed this. Its is good to hear the truth said without quibble about the institution, or raher sacrament, so misunderstood. I work in male dominated profession with alphas, as they call them, to the right and left and all of them believe it is fine to pass out cards publicly to each other bearing the name of the best doctor to be surgically unmanned by. The modern mind has been so turned from the truth concerning intimacy that most affairs are glorified in modern stories as a version of the “real love” that this ancient antiquated institution could not provide. It is the closing of our hearts to children and to self denial that has destroyed our appetite for real love, and our homes have become frought with anxiety and addiction as a result. We must return to the great rooted bed post like Odysseus! If only one family at a time. Thank you Dr. Fleming for the wisdom.

    Sharif, my friend, it is good to hear from you. I wish you and Robert had been able to join us for the discussion of Oedipus at Colonus. The next one, on Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, will take up the marriage question, because the play revolves around the dispute between Puritans, on one side, and Catholics and Anglicans on the other. We are also going to make a bit more of a party out of the evening.
