    Then we can both rebuke the abominations we see before us. I will rebuke christianity because I think it's bigoted bull****, and you can rebuke homosexuality because you think it's a sin. The only important part here is that neither you, me, or anyone else have any power to use the government to deny rights to the groups we don't like.

It is in the child’s best interests that he be raised under the influence of his natural father and mother. This rule is confirmed by the evident difficulties faced by the many children who are orphans or are raised by a single parent, a relative, or a foster parent.
    There is like five flaws in your logic.

    1: Same-sex couples are generally allowed to have children regardless of whether or not they are allowed to marry.

    2: Same-sex couples generally choose when they raise children and have to generally go through considerable effort to do so and as such show considerably better outcomes than your average young heterosexual couple.

    3: You would not deny single parents the opportunity to marry if it would benefit a child so why would having two parents be worse than having one even if they are the same sex?

    4: You do not deny marriage to women who have their tubes tied or men who have vasectomies and those procedures are clearly against natural law.

    5: Even if it is true that children fair better with parents of opposite genders there are factors considerably more important such as whether the parents are abusive or neglectful, which means you are putting gender above the capacity for people to actually parent.

    This is why your arguments fail in court. They are baseless and irrational and exist entirely as religious sensibilities that have no place in policy or law.

    So what's your point again?????
    Well, it was in the past, when there was not so much noise around gays. And there was not so many gay propaganda. Do you know, that in the present time, the number of those who became gay under the influence of gay environment and gay propaganda is equal to the number of those who are gay by nature
