Redefining Marriage

March 23, 2009


The Webster Dictionary is arguably one of the most culture-defining items ever produced in American history. Its continued popularity as the dictionary of choice is a testament to its quality. In its earlier days, it was almost a Christian dictionary, as it reflected a largely Christian American culture. Many of the definitions were illustrated by specific passages of Scripture. The newest version continues the shift away from the dictionary’s historical roots. Like the mainstream media, the Webster Dictionary has redefined marriage. This story was picked up by World Net Daily. Among the first reports of this was this video on YouTube.

Is this a case of the editors of the dictionary using an agenda to shape culture? Is this a case of the editors observing culture and reflecting it in how they define marriage? What do you think?
