I am amused by the idea that homosexuality is one of the "symptoms of our failure to embrace pro-marriage policies." In other words, the wrong policies turn people gay. Funny!

Homosexuality fights against the traditional GOD given rule of marriage. Marriage is between one man and one woman. You know the law of the land that this admistration refuses to enforce. So yes it is detrimental toward marriage.

I was thinking the very same thing. She had me with this article until she made that stupid statement.

If shacking up without marriage makes people become welfare cheats, then you make it easier for gays if you insist they remain unmarried.

That is totally NOT a contradiction. Real (man-woman) marriage is the "ideal state," and "gay marriage" utterly contradicts, not conforms to, that state. There is no "denying of marital status" to anyone; there IS a denying of "marital status" to relationships that are not true marriage.

We now live in a time where social welfare incentives have engendered unprecedented numbers of unmarried parents, causing record deficits. The inability to address this issue has politically-hobbled every Republican president since Reagan. Our government needs to take responsibility for creating this monster and start on a new path of adopting policies that are good for families.

The “marriage gap” carnage of 2012’s election forces us to confront the reasons for accelerating cultural decline since the days of Reagan. President Reagan had no pro-marriage social policy in his toolbox to counter liberal welfare and no-fault divorce.
