    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.

    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.
