    Jerry, why on earth have you come to the conclusion that marriage is only about having and raising offspring? That is a redefinition of marriage that would have far greater implications toward the institution than allowing gays to marry ever could.

    It's a great way to change the subject of gay marriage threads tho.

    Kind of a stealth redirect approach. As long as no one objects to wasting time talking about something other than the topic, no problem.

    Or just a classic red herring.

    It isn't. Legal marriage is about tax benefits and simplifying divorce court procedures regarding which partner gets what, nothing more.

    Exactly. Why wouldn't gays want that same level of legal clarity in relationships?

    Well a part of it is also about death benefits. Such as inheriting a house that both partners contributed too creating.

    There are some real differences, in particular when it comes to children. Example:

    State GLB Adoption Policies
    • Only Florida forbids “homosexuals” from adopting (Florida Statutes § 63.042(3)), and bisexuals are also apparently disqualified.
    • Mississippi explicitly bans “same-gender” couples from adopting (MISS CODE ANN § 93-17-3-(5)), as does Utah through a ban on adoption by all unmarried couples (UTAH CODE ANN § 78-30-1(3)(b)). However, single GLB people in Mississippi and Utah might be able to adopt.
    • In contrast, some states have policies that either explicitly or implicitly state that sexual orientation cannot be a basis to prevent gay and lesbian people from adopting, including California, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and the District of Columbia (Cooper and Cates, 2006, p. 6).

    ...

    State GLB Fostering Policies
    • Nebraska has a policy prohibiting gay people from fostering, but the current enforcement of that policy is unclear (Cooper and Cates, 2006).
    • As with adoption, Utah forbids fostering by unmarried couples (UTAH CODE ANN § 62A-4A-602).
    • A policy banning gay foster parents was recently removed by the Department of Social Services in Missouri and overturned by the state Supreme Court in Arkansas (Cooper and Cates, 2006, p. 11).
    Now tell me how many states ban mixed sex couples from adopting and fostering.

    Your errors in this thread cannot be measured by modern technology. It's as if you do not understand the concept of what we are discussing.
