We’ve got some bad news for you guys – gays are completely and utterly worthless. At least that’s what Peter Sprigg says in an infuriating op-ed over at USA Today.
The Family Research Council policy Vice-President (pictured, looking a lot like Michael Savage) insists that states should not allow gay nuptials not only because “the legal and financial benefits of marriage are not an entitlement for every citizen regardless of lifestyle,” but because we’re simply not reproductive enough…
Society gives “benefits” to marriage because marriage gives benefits to society. Therefore, when those who are not married, such as people in homosexual or cohabiting relationships, seek to receive such public benefits, they bear the burden of proof. They must show that such relationships benefit society (not just themselves) in the same way and to the same degree that authentic marriage between a man and a woman does.
This is a burden they cannot meet. Only the union of a man and a woman can result in the natural reproduction that is essential literally to continue the human race. And research clearly demonstrates that married men and women – and children raised by their married, biological mother and father – are happier, healthier and more prosperous than people in any other living situation. These are the true benefits of marriage.
Actually, there’s no research saying children raised by “breeders” will come out any better than their queer-raised counterparts. In fact, there’s research saying the latter are just as well adjusted as any other kids. Oh well, facts have never suited Family Research Council and their nefarious policy.
