So my last post went a little long and I was unable to blog about the next lovely letter to the editor (LTE) in the Blade . This one deals with the constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, and centers on the idea that two-parent families are best for kids. Then it goes this way:
--"we could go ahead and allow gay marriage but simply prohibit gay couples for raising children.
--"shouldn't we also ban single-parent households?"
--"why don't we amend the Constitution to ban divorce, since it is one of the leading causes of single-parent households?"
Oh sheesh. Come on. Well, if you're Catholic, then yeah, you should be raising kids in a two-parent house b/c that's the way you get them! Single-parent households aren't the way to go, neither is divorce. Kids needs two parents. Why mess with thousands of years of something that's worked? You need that female/male exposure. The Church is, one occasion, right about these things (OK, so I think they're right about most everything, but y'know)....
