"Gays or straight it doesn't really matter. As a long as you have two intelligent people who raise their children in THE BEST INTEREST OF THE
Does the best interest include the depiction or representation of the most common functional method of the procreation of human beings, i.e. a man and
woman? Those concepts of "best interest" are incomplete when they exclude the most prevalent natural expression of our species, which is the union
of a man and a woman.
to another poster...marriage should probably be an institution of the church and civil unions should be of the legal system, and be as inclusive as
possible so as not to exclude any two people from expressing their love for each other, and should empower those couples with full legal rights and
permissions and ensure the equality of treatment for the citizens who choose to participate in any partnership or union.
There has been so much wasted time fighting back and forth about a moot point. There is what is represented by the union of a man and woman, and there
are other unions. These two groups are not meant to be conflicting but complimentary. They are unequal, different based on the factors that define
them. In a hetero union there exists the biological possibility that procreation can occur. In a homosexual union there is no such possibilty. These
facts indicate there is a difference between the two types of unions. Because there is a difference I think efforts have been deliberately futile,
when it comes to attempts at equating these two unions.
Accepting our differences and working together in the spirit of equality is the direction these hot topics need to head in. Laws should establish,
item for item all of the same facilities available to those in same sex unions as well as heterosexual unions. Laws should help ensure fair treatment
of all couples and discrimination should be rooted out.
But I think actually the Gay marriage issue has been hijacked from within to ensure its failure by trying to claim that there is in fact equality in
the circumstance of a gay union versus a hetero union. How are two different things the same thing? they are not, and claiming so has to date only
served to polarize more strongly those on opposing sides of the issue, limiting the progress that can be made. The arguments as presented by the
proponents of gay marriage, if they include the concept that there is equality betwen the two types of unions, will be therefore flawed, by the
inclusion of such an illogical statement.
For Gay people to win their rights, they should fight logically. Calling the Apple an Orange weakens the case they try to make.
My two cents is....
There is NOTHING in all the universe, more special and sacred than than a man and a woman choosing to love each other and the beautiful miracle of
life that can come forth from their marriage. If they maintain that loving environment, consistently, there is a good probability that offspring will
be a benefit to society and future generations.
Secondly, there exists the same very real possibility that a homosexual couple, joined in a civil union, can rear and provide a beneficial environment
to a child and have an equally beneficial member of society come forth from their home.
