I understand straight couples divorce and often times custody goes to the mom, because the states judges in regards to this are elected not by people but what is called "merit selection"
Personally if you are gay I have no problem with that, but no this is not about sexuality. This is about the state trampling on more and more of your god given rights as stated in the constitution.
Well in regards to the constitution. All are created equal as endowed by their creator.
Marriage is simply an institution that was designed by those principals to protect families.
There will be no gay marriage custody battles in which both parties are the biological parents, because it is impossible.
If you live in a state where both parents are stripped of their rights to their children in favor of the state and you live in a state where gay marriage is legal. It is quite likely that the state will allow gay parents to adopt your children and there will be nothing that you can say or do about it.
