    No, it's anti to be anti. Anti Ssm is anti family. That it's just spin.

    Pedophiles are much more likely to be homosexual or bisexual than the average person.

    Moreover, the most commonly practiced type of homosexuality practiced historically was ephebophilia.

    In any case, my point was to refute your comment that sexual orientation is irrelevant to parenting.

    Please answer the question.

    the majority of pedophiles have a straight sexual orientation
    ephebophilia is not a type of homosexuality

    I never thought about it before. I am not certain that being either pro or anti same sex marriage has anything at all to do with being pro family. Of course that might depend on what or how one views being pro family is. I really do not think it is related.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Personally, no I don't think that.

    But do I understand the reasoning behind such a claim and think that it's logically consistent given the thought process of those making the statement? Yes.

    Part of why some people opposed "same sex marriage" is a belief that "marriage" as a government entity should be there in part to encourage the "traditional family unit" of a mother, father, and children. Often, these people feel that a non-traditional unit is either worse, or at the least less ideal, and thus shouldn't necessarily be encouraged via governmental recognition. If a person holds such a view then it makes logical sense to claim to be "pro-family" by being "anti-same sex marriage" because, based on their ideological thinking, they are in favor of promoting the "traditional family unit" via the government as opposed to encouraging marriage that is less likely to product a family unit, let alone a "traditional" one.

    Now, I don't really think a homosexual couple adopting is inherently worse nor do I think the primary purpose of marriage as a government recognized entity should be to promote having children...so I disagree in general with that logic. But I can understand the claim and why he'd make it based on his likely view points regarding the issues.

    “Same sex marriage” never has been, and never will be the same thing as genuine marriage. It will never be anything more than a sick, hollow mockery of marriage. To promote it as being in any way comparable to genuine marriage is to attack and degrade marriage, to suggest that genuine marriage is no more meaningful or important than a sick mockery.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
