Dying Gay Man In Ohio Should’ve Married A Woman If He Wants A Spouse, Says Linda Harvey

linda harveyThere is no discrimination or inequality, either of these men could be married to a woman. Can marriage just be what anyone thinks it is? Here’s a possible analogy. Sophie wants to be a doctor, she’s never gone to medical school but in her mind she’s qualified to treat patients, even perform surgery.

She believes she should be allowed to practice medicine therefore the requirements to be a licensed MD are unconstitutional for her.”
