Even If Your Child Is Gay...

"Never be marriage?". Hardly logically, and only in your mind and people like you, but that will not matter legally or culturally since the very vast majority of people in time will come to accept gay marriage and you will sadly likely go to your grave not doing so. The gay people who are legally married and all who know and care for them will be happy. You will not. Great for them; bummer for you and your kind. But that is your choice so in that sense, it does matter.....but again ONLY for you.

Last week, Republican Senator Rob Portman of Ohio announced that he had reversed his position on same-sex marriage. The reason was that his son had come out to him and his wife as gay.

This is not the first such instance. Periodically, we hear about Republican politicians whose child announces that he or she is gay, prompting the parent to change his mind about the man-woman definition of marriage.

As a parent, I understand these parents. We love our children, and we want them to love us.

Nevertheless I differ with their decisions to support the redefinition...
