Apparently, pointing out how “gay marriage” can potentially hurt children makes me a bigot. Because name calling *so proves* the same sex parents are “better” at being parents than opposite sex parents. Sorry, no it doesn’t.
Science has proven time and again that children thrive much better in a home where their mother and father are married to each other. There is currently no evidence that supports same sex parents being the same as opposite sex parents. The studies that have been done are too few, too small, and the sampling too self selective.
I do not hate gays or any one suffering from same sex attraction. I’ve had friends who were gay. They have a heavy burden to bear. But they have been deceived and lied to about living the homosexual lifestyle and it’s effects on themselves and others. Children should not be brought into this mess.
So what if their same sex parents love the children? Parenting and being good parents is more than just “love”. But too many people, of all stripes, think love will fix anything and everything. No, it won’t. Children are abused all the time because their parents “love” them but they are still being abused. Love is an excuse here and hurts everyone.
Homosexuals need help, not hate.
They, themselves, are not the issue. Their sexual acts, their attempt to redefine marriage, and their agitation for “rights” are the problems. Homosexual people are made in the image and likeness of God. Same sex attraction is an effect of sin that entered the world at The Fall when Adam disobeyed God and ate of the tree of knowledge. Same sex orientation is a deviance. It has no evolutionary benefit though the people who suffer from it are not, in any way, at fault from suffering from same sex attraction.
So, my pointing out the problems of “gay marriage” and adding children into the mix does not make me a bigot, a hater, or a homophobe. It makes me concerned about all involved. As someone who has been abused, I choose to speak out against abuse and potential abuse. I choose to speak for children who cannot or are prevented from speaking for themselves. I choose to a voice for the voiceless and those who have their voices silenced. I also stand up for the teachings of the Catholic Church on family and marriage because they are the best teachings and protect men, women, and children from abuse and violence.
And since I forgot this in my previous post, children born from artificial means are still children worthy of love, protection, dignity, and respect. Their parents’ decision are not theirs and do not reflect on the personhood of the child. Children born from these means should not be considered wrong or bad. They are just children. Their parents’ decision to use artificial means of procreation is wrong but the children are never wrong.
