This week on “Voice of the Nation” they be talking about the great success in Maine and the election results for both conservative governors in Virginia and New Jersey. Join us as we talk with Scott Loveless about protecting marriage and family as we move forward from the big win in Maine.
Guest: Scott Loveless – Scott Loveless served eight years as the Executive Director of the World Family Policy Center at the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University. He initially practiced law for 20 years with the U.S. Department of the Interior, focusing on issues affecting environmental concerns: water law, environmental law, public land law, and mining and mineral leasing law. However, he pursued a Ph.D. in Family Studies (BYU 2000) after having observed the adverse consequences of divorce within his circle of acquaintances while living in the Washington, D.C. area. His dissertation sought to understand the human-relational effects of personal philosophies of happiness on the marriage relationship. He has continued to write and publish on related themes, most recently in the 3-volume set, The Family in the New Millenium (Praeger), on which he served as lead editor. His current primary professional interests (and reason for joining UFI) are in the moral/philosophical origins of human rights law, current moral tensions in human rights law at the UN and elsewhere, and the consequences for societies and families of the different possible resolutions of those tensions. Scott and Cheri, his wife of 35 years, are the grateful parents of 3 sons and 5 daughters and have 8 grandchildren.
