"Marriage is the only institution that unites kids with their moms and dads"
In a culture as dysfunctonal as contemporary California, it becomes neccesary to remind people of the obvious, such as the title of this post.
Our friend Bill May, of Catholics for the Common Good, is profiled in today's Catholic News Agency. Bill is warning people of the latest attempt by same-sex "marriage" activists to destroy marriage by redefinition. May is talking about SB 1140. All you need to know is that the bill was introduced by San Francisco's State Senator Mark Leno, and is supported by Equality California. Bill says:
“At a time when marriage is in crisis, when 41 percent of children are born outside of marriage, when 44 percent of young adults believe that marriage is obsolete, we need to be promoting the positive reality of marriage, not redefining it out of existence.”
What is happening,” he explained, “is a redefinition of what marriage is, turning it into nothing more than the public recognition of a committed relationship between adults. It removes from the law any connection between marriage, children, mothers, and fathers....”
“Marriage is the only institution that unites kids with their moms and dads,” May observed. “If marriage is redefined to accommodate same-sex couples, there will be no institution in the law that does that.”
