Even If Your Child Is Gay...

Prager you cannot elevate marriage without coming across as a complete hyporcrite. Heterosexuals have destroyed any sanctity or social value of the construct already. So saying that "gays will destroy marriage" is a bald faced lie -- you killed marriage, you're just hogging its corpse. Given that, I still do not support gay marriage through judicial fiat, or Obozo executive order.

Individual marriages are killed through selfishness, domination and abuse.

The institution itself, however, is still the best way for civilization to endure.

I dont disagree with that. I am all for the revival of strong marriages -- but gay marriage (whether it comes about or not) has nothing to do with that. The fact that there a people who think it does *IS* the problem.

BTW, I have nothing against gays raising children -- but I also believe in the primary value of having a mother and father. But again, it was heterosexuals who destroyed that value. I just have to ask, when will you people bear your own cross instead looking to pin one on others?

A better way to say it might be "gays will do more damage beyond what's already been done."

No, gays and lesbians will not do more damage to the institution of legal marriage. They will only enhance our compassion to accept differences in our species. On a lighter note: when the aliens come here....maybe we will accept them too......(or maybe they have arrived and we just are not ready yet for their appearance).

How many wrongs make a right?

Why? Going for a record in hopes to make a right?

But is it a wrong? We thought it was right to keep slaves earlier in our nation's being....We changed that legally and it was changing a wrong into a right....

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...
