(Conservative) Institute urges cities to map out family roles
By Lori Buttars

Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2005

A Utah-based conservative group is asking cities and counties across the state to put a "family filter" on their policymaking.

In a letter mailed last month, Paul T. Mero, president of the Sutherland Institute, urges mayors and council members to pass a nonbinding resolution sanctioning the "natural family as the fundamental unit of society."

Mero even provides a sample resolution for elected officials to use in their official proclamations.

The document calls for cities to "envision a local culture" that:
* "Upholds the marriage of a woman to a man, and a man to a woman, as ordained of God."
* "Celebrates the marital sexual union as the unique source of new human life."
* "Sees our homes as open to a full quiver of children."
* "Envisions young women growing into wives, homemakers and mothers; and . . . young men growing into husbands, home builders and fathers."
