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.

Additionally, as I said above, homosexual unions produce nothing of value to society - why should they merit the same benefits as traditional marriage, the building block of society?

Using the government to force false equivalency on society is always a lose-lose.

Pascal said, “People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive.” So-called marriage “equality” is attractive. Who could be against equality?

But what if the word “equality” is being misused? What if that kind of equality will have the unintended consequence of hurting children, individuals and the nation? And what if everyone already has true equality?

True equality does not conflate people and behavior. People are equal but their behaviors are not. When liberals claim that certain sexual behaviors are equal – or that all outcomes...
