    Is being anti-same sex marriage Pro-Family?

    I have noticed that Senator Pat Roberts is billing himself in adds here in the Kansas City area as a Pro-Family Candidate because of his position against same sex marriage. Do you think that being anti-same sex marriage makes one pro-family?

    If anything, it makes you anti-family.

    While he may be portraying himself that way, I personally do not equate the two positions. One may or may not hold both beliefs, of course.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    pro-family is just rebranding so it sounds less mean. if sen. roberts we're pro-family he would be pro-less-children-being-orphans

    Anti-marriage is pro-family? Nonsense.

    Absolutely not . The anti-SSM types are the anti-family side. You want to show me you're pro-family? Let me marry my girlfriend, adopt a child, and start one. Until then...you cannot claim to be "pro-family." Sorry.

    In my opinion, if one is pro-family, then you are in favor of strong, stable, and loving families. If you are a politician that is pro-family, then you should support policies that encourage the formation of strong and stable families. I don't see how being anti-same sex marriage could be pro-family in any way.

    I don't see how being married is a requirement to be a strong, stable and loving family, gay or otherwise.

    Being pro-family would certainly include opposing homosexual relationships.

    Of course opposing unmarried cohabitation, spousal abandonment, child abuse, abortion, IVF, IUI, contraception, and the like is also pro-family.

    Re: Is being anti-same sex marriage Pro-Family?

    Marriage between a man and a woman is the most essential foundation of family.

    One cannot honestly claim to be “pro-family”, while also being in favor of redefining “marriage” to include such a sick mockery as “same sex marriage”. This effort to redefine and undermine marriage is a direct attack on the family.
    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.
