Like me, you may be interested in watching this video.
The video simply provides anecdotal evidence supporting the overwhelming case in support of marriage, the lifelong union of a man and woman which is open to children, as the best social context for children to be raised.
No other grouping offers such a high level of that security and stability that human beings need to flourish. Research shows overwhelmingly that children growing up within marriage do better in terms of health, educational success, careers and their own marriages. It is precisely because children matter, that real marriage between one man and one woman matters so much.
In the British context and no doubt elsewhere in the world, we should never tire of pointing out that Government statistics show that (in Britain) children conceived outside of marriage are 4 to 5 times more likely to be aborted than those conceived within marriage.
Tragically, last month, the US Supreme Court,ruled there is a constitutional right for same-sex couples to marry, which no state may deny. In doing so they may well have been misled by research from the American Sociological Association (ASA).
According to Dr Patrick Fagan:
The ASA has weighed in strongly supporting same-sex marriage and same-sex parenting with the potent claim that “the clear and consistent social science consensus is that children raised by same sex parents fare just as well as children raised by different sex parents.” This is a selective and dishonest reading of the research.In a devastating critique, of the ASA, which can be read in full, Pat Fagan details four national survey reports that, through their sample size, give the lie completely to the ASA’s assertions.
We must do everything we can, without fear, if we truly care about children, born and/or unborn, to resist the march of the ideological footsoldiers of the homosexual "rights" lobby not least in their moment of triumph in the US and in Ireland.
