MercatorNet: The power of unconditional love | MercatorNet

MercatorNet
Being loved unconditionally is the most powerful experience a human being can have. It gives us the strength to face the present and hope to face the future. It is the mortar which binds families and societies together.
Yet, as Doug Mainwaring points out in his essay in today’s selection of stories, unconditional love is undermined by powerful social trends like abortion, divorce and same-sex marriage. They make love conditional upon having the right characteristics. After a couple of generations, the experience of rejection changes the way we feel about one another. It’s a powerful and thought-provoking essay
