Brandy, are you serious???<quoted text> although children know the difference, they don't discriminate until ppl like you try to force them to see your point of view... my children are very accepting of everyone...they were raised that way... I don't force them to think or believe anything... when they get older they will make up their own minds about who they love and who they spend their lives with... have you ever been married?? I'm just curious if you truly understand the concept of marriage outside of what books tell you... its about way more than gender...
I 'force' children to discern the difference between their parents and ss couples???
No wonder you are having a hard time distinguishing between relationships.
Here are some differences that I have learned from being married 36 years and yes, from books. But mostly just common sense...
believe denying marriage to a relationship
will prevent love
demand any committed relationship
has to be called marriage
claim rights and benefits can only be acquired
by an imposition on marriage
equate the diversity of two genders
with the redundancy of same genders
desecrate the sacred tradition of all major religions
and violate the historic practice of every single culture in history
believe a fundamental change to the building block of society
will have absolutely no affect
think a law can change
the reality of crucial distinctions in relationships
pretend duplicating sexuality
is the same as blending masculinity and femininity
condemn some children to parents of only one gender
and deliberately deny some children one natural parent
ignore the design of sexual union
to manipulate a harmful act
violate evolution's law of reproduction
to equate a genetic dead end
risk the healthiest human relationship
to include one of the unhealthiest
parallel the sole birthplace of every other relationship
with one that can reproduce none
dilute all these things
down to just 'a committed relationship of two people'
Then, and only then, can you equate same-sex unions with marriage.
