Last month at the World Congress of Families, Dr. Patrick Fagan, Director of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute (MARRI), unveiled a new resource for gathering and digesting social science research on marriage, family, sexuality, and religion issues. According to its description, “MARRIpedia… synthesizes and translates the work of myriad social scientists into concise, issue-specific entries that are intelligible to the lay reader.” It is intended to provide data that can inform students, reporters, and policymakers in their work. MARRI launched as a daughter organization of the Family Research Council in 2010, and more information about the institute can be found here.
