Conservative Talking Points finds it hard to understand why this is even up for discussion or debate. Only liberalism could be so devoid in morality and basic common sense to think or much less push the sanctity of marriage to be anything other than between one man and one woman.
Why Gay Marriage Is Wrong (Source: Jan LaRue - CWFA.org)
· The natural means by which the human race reproduces is through opposite-sex marriage.
· Homosexual marriage is as wrong as giving a man a license to marry his mother or daughter or sister or a group.
· Homosexual marriage will harm children by denying them the love and nurture of a mom and a dad.
· If the government issues a license to babysitters that grants them the same rights, protections and responsibilities as a child's parents, parenthood is devalued. The government says parents are just babysitters. Same goes for government licensing gay marriage.
