Procreation is necessary for the species, and marriage is the best way to ensure thriving families, says John C. There is such an overriding premise, namely that people should be treated equally under the law. And yet, oddly, those same evil white bigots never wrote a single law forbidding two people of the same sex from getting married to each other. Indeed, many opponents do regard homosexuality as immoral or sinful. The City of San Diego serioulsy thought about challenging the verdict.

To quote one of the authors of the study, The vast consensus of all the studies shows that children of same-sex parents do as well as children whose parents are heterosexual in every way. Dozens of studies have shown gay people to be entirely capable of raising children. What does marriage honour?
