The Case Against “Equality” Part 2

Questions I've never gotten answers to so far, part two: More for those who want a "gay marriage"... One of the reasons divorce is so common is that marriage — the intimate joining of two opposite people — is extraordinarily difficult. It takes a maturity and a willingness to grow that not everyone has. Making such a relationship work demands great unselfishness and character growth from its participants. But if they persevere, they become better people for it. This is a benefit of a committed, traditional marriage that is simply not equaled in other arrangements. What does your relationship have to offer in its place? What purposes or goals does your relationship have that the participation of an entire gender — with all its...

You just answered your own question. You're assuming gay people are incapable of unselfishness, or relationship endurance or responsibility for children. If they weren't there would be NO political action and such passionate investment in due process of law to marry. DUH.
People who don't want to, or have no understanding of marriage wouldn't do that. Gay people wouldn't adopt, and open their homes to unwanted children (which most anti gay factions haven't done), nor go through expense of what it takes to have children through IVF.

On part two, you say that there are benefits from growing together as a couple, being mature and percevering through hardship. I agree.

We created a situation where people attracted to each other can not wed and then criticize them when they do not act like married people.

Same sex couples can love each other the same way opposite sex couples do

What purposes or goals does your relationship have that the participation of an entire gender — with all its unique, irreplaceable qualities — is unnecessary for, or even an impediment to?

In yesterday’s column, I listed some of the benefits that natural marriage provides children and society. But some claim that promoting natural marriage exclusively violates the rights of people who are attracted to the same sex. That’s not true. The three P’s will help us see why.

The government has only three options in addressing human behavior. It can prohibit a behavior, it can permit a behavior or it can promote a behavior—the three P’s.

Our laws prohibit sexual relationships such as polygamy, incest and pedophilia. They permit homosexual relationships and non-marital heterosexual relationships. And due to the immense...
