Mr. Turek's reasoning regarding why same-gender marriage should not be allowed is flawed. First, allowing same-gender marriage would not make marriage "genderless". It would make marriage gender-neutral, but not "genderless". The civil contract of marriage has nothing to do with children. Allowing same-gender marriage would in no way affect the ability of people to get married and have children. There is no suggestion of same-gender marriage only. So the whole "society ending" argument is invalid. Catholic Charities choose to stop providing adoptions. They were not forced. Anti-discrimination laws are already in place. Granting of same-gender marriage is unrelated to those laws.

How wonderful it is to know that all the things Mr. Turek mentioned will still be firmly in place if same-gender marriage becomes legal. In fact, in certain instances it will be enhanced. Studies have shown that the number of married couples correlates to a more stable society, greater community involvement, lower crime, and any other number of benefits. By expanding marriage to even more people, those benefits will be enhanced. In addition, the ability of children to be raised by two parents who are married will also be enhanced. At the same time, the ability of opposite-gender couples to marry and raise families will in no way be inhibited. Sounds like a win-win.
