Traditional marriage

needs your support

Same sex marriage is a difficult issue to address because it involves real people with emotions and their search for happiness. The same sex advocates often paint their opposition as having an irrational hatred towards gays and as bigots. The mainstream gay marriage opponents have little to do with bigotry and everything to do marriage as the sexual union of male and female, oriented to connect fathers to mothers and their children. It is necessary to the strengthening of society that connects sex, love, children, and mothers and fathers.

To buttress traditional marriage, the research proves children do best when raised by married biological mothers and fathers. We have no research on motherless families or scientific information on how children fare raised by single gay dads or two gay dads that are not their biological offspring. Are Americans ready to experiment with our children in order to satisfy certain adult desires among a very small percentage of our population?

However, support for a man-woman marriage is no excuse to deny a civil union of same sex couples, but do not force us to accept their union on the same level as traditional marriage.

If same sex marriage prevails, it will further marginalize we Christians and disenfranchise our faith values in our government. Eventually we will be demonized by our left leaning govt. and secular society.The radical monogamy brought about two thousand years ago by our church will be replaced by pagan Rome where same sex marriage, pedophilia and polygamy will be practiced with the consent of Caesar.
