Redefining Marriage Will Come With Costs// and it will never be worth it…

I came across this really interesting article about what marriage is and what redefining it would really mean for American society, couples and families. The author poses this question:

What is marriage, and what is its role in society?

The government does not bestow recognition and benefits on couples simply because they have a committed sexual relationship, but because of the good that their commitment can bring to society. With marriage between one man and one woman, this “good” is its fundamental link with family.

What makes marriage unique among all human relationships and raises it to the level of a sacred bond is this: The union of one man and one woman is the only natural way that children are conceived. Moreover, the people best suited and motivated to take on the great task of raising a child from helpless newborn to independent adult are the mother and father whose love first brought that child into the world.

Marriage, then, is not just a private pledge of faithfulness, but a public vow to place the needs of others (spouse, children) above one’s desires. The “procreative potential” of man and woman does not keep their love focused inward, but enables it to reach outward, through the family, to literally build up society.

This notion of selflessness that is fundamentally necessary when rearing a happy and healthy child, is entirely contrary to information contained in this post from yesterday, wherein gay parents seem to  live in some alternate reality where “same-sex couples [think they] have a right to “get” children. (obviously it would be “get” since homosexuals in a homosexual relationship can’t “have” their own children). It’s as though children are a commodity to have. “I want to have a car. I want to have a house. I want to have a child.” There is a complete disregard for the rights, needs and wants of a child, which first and foremost is that child’s right to both a married father and a mother. The best parents are the ones who understand this need for selflessness, and putting their children, spouses and families first.

States have an enormous stake in the success of families. When families are stable and successful, all of society benefits. When they fail, however, the consequences are devastating and far-reaching. States should make every effort to uphold the integrity of the family!

I LOVE THIS NEXT PART!!!… It should be plain as day people;  there is no reason for confusion as to why marriage needs to remain between a man and a woman. These are very straightforward and simple facts that homosexuals CHOOSE to ignore, and incidentally, they have nothing to do with so-called mean American’s trying to take away their alleged civil rights.

Of course, not all one-man, one-woman marriages can or do give rise to family. However, because the male/female union is the only relationship that can ever produce children, it provides a clear standard, derived from our very human nature, to define marriage and confirm its unique contribution to society.

When we separate marriage from its fundamental connection with procreation, removing even the biological possibility, then we reduce it to state recognition of a committed sexual relationship. Once this happens, “anything goes.” If two men in a loving, committed relationship have the right to marry, how can we deny that right to three or more people whose relationship is equally loving and committed?

The author goes on to point out that, by establishing civil unions or same-sex marriage, we are not simply allowing homosexuals to enjoy certain rights they were previously denied, but we are changing our understanding of marriage to a point from which there is no turning back.

But unfortunately, that is exactly what the dissenters want, to destroy marriage, destroy families, destroy society and invite filth and immorality to take over this country. Which in their minds will lessen the guilt they have about their own personal choices. As the saying goes, misery loves company, so of course they are trying their best to keep focused on their misery recruitment campaign, but the truth is,  “wickedness never was happiness,” Book of Mormon, Alma 41:10. We as a society, as parents, as individuals do not need to be taken in by this nonsense, we do not need to back down and we do NOT need to abandon our morals and our religious convictions just because the GLTB mob is trying to win through intimidation. We need to be proactive in fighting for what’s right, fighting to keep the immorality out of our homes, and our lives and we need to be a voice of reason in the midst of all of this chaos. I am proud of my beliefs and of my stance on protecting traditional marriage.

States have already consented that homosexuals have the same rights and privileges as other married couples with regards to taxes, health benefits and property. They don’t really NEED to have marriage, they just see it as the first step in their plan of mass destruction.

In America, people are free to make their own lifestyle choices. However, these choices should not entail redefining marriage to the detriment of society.

The author goes on to discuss other logical consequences of legalizing same-sex marriage. {Click here to read more of the article…}
