Activists clash over marriage

Opponents of same sex marriage held a rally on the Mall and marched to the Supreme Court where they were met with chants from LGBT rights advocates. Activists from both sides of the marriage debate had gathered on Capitol Hill during the oral arguments for the Hollingsworth v. Perry case which will decide the fate of California’s Proposition 8.

  • Seeing the Anti-marriage picket sign, “Every Child Deserve a Mom & Dad”, set me to thinking:

    I don’t understand science but, for some highly technical reason, same-sex couples have extremely few unplanned and unwanted pregnancies. The children who are born to or adopted by same-sex couples are very much wanted and loved.

    You’d think, from those picket signs, that there were not hundreds of thousands of children in America already waiting to be adopted.
