Because freedom can't protect itself
During the CA Supreme court hearing on single sex marriage,it became very clear to me that the most important minority was not represented or even mentioned. That minority are the children which are directly link to the existence of marriage.
Same sex marriage will further break down the American family by diminishing the value of biological children being raised by their own parents. After supporting no fault divorce and single parenting, the ACLU is now pushing for single sex marriage. If it was really about equality, the ultimate welfare of children would be the first priority. It is the last.
By the way, I do not see any section on your blog of rights about children's rights and their ultimate welfare. Children are the true minority and cannot defend themselves.
You have it all upside down. It is time for a makeover and a complete reversal of your agenda.
The claim that the bigots are fighting for kids is proven to be a lie by the fact that lots of street kids are there because their Christian parents discovered that they were gay.
Btw I didn't get that fact from the internet,I was a street person myself(but not for the same reason)and I once had to get a 15 year old to the hospital
after she had been beaten and gang raped to cure her of being a dyke.
Your argument doesn't hold water. Many gay parents are the biological parents of children in their homes. Many are adoptive parents - which last I heard - means they have equal rights as parents to those who have biological children.
If you looked at the lines of gay couples waiting to get married when it was still legal - you would have seen that more than half had children with them - and no telling about the rest who may have kids but had left them at home that day.
Children grow up with love and care in the households of gay couples and multiple studies have found that they do just as well as those in a dual-sex parenting situation.
Also - why is it okay for gay couples to foster kids with HIV/AIDS, but when those kids become virus-free all of a sudden they are yanked from the only home they have ever known because now that they are well - it isn't appropriate any more?
Pretty damned double standard if you ask me.
