"The results of more than a century of anthropological research on households, kinship relationships, and families, across cultures and through time, provide no support whatsoever for the view that either civilization or viable social orders depend upon marriage as an exclusively heterosexual institution. Rather, anthropological research supports the conclusion that a vast array of family types, including families built upon same-sex partnerships, can contribute to stable and humane societies."

Do I? How can I disagree if it WAS never actually given? I realize this is a different thread, but let me sum up my previous question, and we'll see if you give me an answer to disagree WITH....

You oppose "marriage" for gay couples, because they won't provide both a mother and a father for a child. Rather than "marriage", you propose Civil Unions for them instead. But, would said CU include a BAN on that couple raising a child?

That's the question. If there is no ban, then I see no difference between marriage and CU. You seem adamant that there ARE differences, but I've yet to hear what those differences are.

In other words, it seems that you (and everyone I've ever spoken to on this issue) actually oppose gay PARENTING, but I've yet to see any provisions or suggestions to stop gay people from raising children. Stopping them from obtaining a legal bond will not stop them from raising children. You realize this, yes?

No.. Jane goes by verifiable scientific evidence; while you inhabit the realm of fantasy and malice-ridden wishful thinking.. Anyone without a still functioning brain will agree with her.. But don't despair.. you'll always find some less than bright character to agree with you..

what BAN?

the distinction could apply merely to "when all other things are equal we prefer a marriage to a CU in terms of adoption".

moms and dads versus moms OR dads...

I'm trying to make this as clear as I can.

Of course, no ban like this currently exists. I'm asking if YOU would SUPPORT such a ban. Would you SUGGEST that Civil Unions INCLUDE a ban against raising children?

Your primary reason for denying "marriage" to gay couples seems to be that they would not provide BOTH a mother and a father to any children that they might raise. Correct me if I misunderstand this position.

But, if a gay couple got a CU, couldn't they STILL raise children in opposition to your complaint? Wouldn't those children STILL be without both a mother and a father? Wouldn't the only way to solve your issue be to BAN them from raising ANY children entirely? I don't understand how CU's would make anything "better" (in your view), if the very same family arrangements would be in place. Do you feel that those children would be just FINE with two moms or two dads, as long as those two are not legally married?

I'm trying to understand what you think CU's solve, and I'm not seeing it.

Wow. Just forget it. You ARE incapable of answer direct questions. I'm left with the impression that this is because the answers would be revealingly poor.

It's because he can't keep his lies straight and he's too lazy to scroll back and read them.
