Why We Should Fight Same-Sex Marriage

Bryan Fischer

Published

If we are looking to craft enlightened public policy on the issue of same-sex marriage, we need look no further than its impact on children.

The best in social research has repeatedly revealed that children fare worse in same-sex environments than in environments in which they are raised by their biological parents who are married to each other.

If we care about children, the public policy question on same-sex marriage answers itself. We should reject same-sex marriage because we love children and want them to grow up in optimal nurturing environments.

More confirmation comes from a new study which has been published in the most recent edition of the British Journal of Education, Society, and Behavioural Science. According to University of Texas sociologist Mark Regnerus, it “appears to be the largest (study) yet on the matter of same-sex households and children’s emotional outcomes.”

As Regnerus writes,

Results reveal that, on eight out of twelve psychometric measures, the risk of clinical emotional problems, developmental problems, or use of mental health treatment services is nearly double among those with same-sex parents when contrasted with children of opposite-sex parents. The estimate of serious child emotional problems in children with same-sex parents is 17 percent, compared with 7 percent among opposite-sex parents, after adjusting for age, race, gender, and parent’s education and income. Rates of ADHD were higher as well—15.5 compared to 7.1 percent. The same is true for learning disabilities: 14.1 vs. 8 percent.

The study’s author concluded that of all the possible explanations (residential stability, stigma, bullying) for these pronounced differences, “biological parentage…accounted for nearly all of the variation in emotional problems.”

Writes Regnerus, “[T]here is no equivalent replacement for the enduring gift to a child that a married biological mother and father offer. It’s no guarantee of success. It’s not always possible. But the odds of emotional struggle at least double without it.”

While the homosexual lobby wants us all to believe otherwise, a careful examination of the best available research demonstrates that every population-based survey reveals the same thing. “Published research employing the New Family Structures Study (NFSS), the ECLS (Early Childhood Longitudinal Study), the US Census (ACS), the Canadian Census, and now the NHIS all reveal a comparable basic narrative, namely, that children who grow up with a married mother and father fare best at face value.”

But the social sciences have become so corrupt that there is no longer any pretense of an objective search for truth. Results are twisted, bent, contorted and misrepresented to serve the interests of the homosexual lobby rather than the truth.

One other salient factor emerges from the research: the comparative instability of same-sex unions. Children need, indeed crave, stability in their home environment. They are enormously vulnerable and utterly dependent on the adults in their world for a sense of security and safety. Yet ,”for couples with children, the dissolution rate for same-sex couples is more than double that of heterosexual couples.”

For children, being raised in a same-sex household is “a clear step down, on average, from households that unite children with their own mother and father.”

Concludes Regnerus, “Biology matters—as new research released this week confirms—and no amount of legislation, litigation, or cheerleading can alter that.”

Bottom line: there is a one-word answer to the question of whether we should fight the legalization of same-sex marriage with every fiber of our being. That word is “children.”

    Parenting and procreation are irrelevant to the issue of marriage equality for Gay couples:

    1: Couples do not need to marry to make babies.
    2: The ability or even desire to make babies are not prerequisites for obtaining a marriage license.
    3: Denying Gay couples the right to marry has never prevented them from adopting children.

    You know, Caiden, if you believe (as I suspect you do) that marriage provides a more stable home environment for the raising of children, why deny adoptive Gay couples the option to marry? Conversely, why deny Gay couples the option to marry if they have no intention of having children.

    Bryan Fischer’s column makes no sense.

      Bryan Fischer’s column makes perfect sense.

      1: “Couples do not need to marry to make babies.” True, but irrelevant. Heterosexual couples can make babies; homosexual couples cannot.

      2: “The ability or even desire to make babies are not prerequisites for obtaining a marriage license.” True but irrelevant. Marriage is a privilege, NOT a right. Marriage licenses should be granted to people based on stability of family and society. Homosexuals are perverting their sex organs to be used with the same sex, not as they were intended for procreation. Heterosexuals do not have an absolute right to marry. Brothers cannot marry sisters, mothers cannot marry sons, and there are age restrictions before heterosexuals can marry.

      3: “Denying Gay couples the right to marry has never prevented them from adopting children.” Not true. many states only allow heterosexual married couples to adopt children. Florida (currently) does not allow homosexual couples to either marry or adopt.

      The truth is that homosexuals should not only not be allowed to marry, but homosexual conduct should be criminalized as it has historically been and still is in many countries. Every country that has ever embraced homosexuality has declined and has been destroyed from within. There is no thriving homosexual nation on earth.

      Homosexual men are largely responsible for spreading HIV and AIDS throughout America and the rest of the world. That is not homophobia; it is homo-fact. Homosexual behavior needs to be rightly stigmatized as an abominable sexual perversion that it is, rather than celebrated, legitimized and equalized with heterosexuality and traditional normal marriage between a husband and wife.

        Do you really think the government has the right to tell you who you are allowed to love or what you do in the privacy of your own home? Criminalizing homosexual behavior sounds like big government to me, buddy.

    George Lujack writes, “Homosexuals should not only not be allowed to marry, but homosexual conduct should be criminalized as it has historically been and still is in many countries.”

    Well, that used to be the case until Lawrence v. Texas. And unless the Constitution only applies to people who are Straight (i.e. heterosexual), there is simply no justification for denying law-abiding, taxpaying Gay couples the exact same legal benefits and opportunities that Straight couples have always taken for granted.

    But if it will make you feel any better, it will have precisely ZERO impact on you, your family, or your church.

THE MOST STUPID THING IN SPORTS/ATHLETICS TODAY: Transgender-women vs. actual women.

Jimmy Zulz

Published

I think that women are starting to react and push back a bit. Finally. This is easily the most stupid thing in sports, and it boggles my mind that the people running these events haven’t put a stop to it already. And that thing is: transgender women are competing with God-made women.

I will guarantee you that there are going to be some male athletes (not all and probably not most), who are unable to compete and win in male competition, so they think hey, this is a great way to be more successful in (fill in the blank).  So, they go through the surgeries and whatever is necessary to compete as a woman and… voila! Now, they are up at the top in competition.

I heard a possibly transitioning-man on sports talk radio (I’m sorry they’re even talking about this) call in and he said, “If the man is going to go through the hardship and painful surgery to become a woman, women in that sport are just going to have to suck it up and realize she’s every bit as much a woman as they all are.”

And that’s the problem: he-now-she is much more than the God-made women in that sport, so he-now-she has an enormous advantage. Strength and ability will likely be more than most women can compete with. It’s absolute bull-crap.

The fact that some women athletes are speaking up is why they were talking about it on the radio. At some point, these God-made women are going to have to DEMAND that trans-she-males will have to have their own division, because putting men in competition with women is flat out unfair. I can’t imagine why this wasn’t done immediately.

MAKING KIDS GAY? Disney to begin indoctrinating and exposing children to homosexuality.

Caiden Cowger

Published

on

Tonight, Disney Channel is airing an episode of Andi Mack, featuring its “first gay coming-out story.” This episode will mark the primer of the show’s second season, and is directed at children ages 10 and up.

Andi’s friend Cyrus Goodman (played by Joshua Rush) will begin his coming-out journey as a homosexual. Disney is using a 15-year-old boy, Joshua Rush, as an instrument to promote the homosexual lifestyle, while also exposing Rush to homosexual behavior in the process. Disney Channel is actively participating in the corruption of a minor.

It is expected that this plot-line could potentially lead to underage, teenage boys participating in same-sex kissing. This perversion will broadcast to millions of teenagers and children across America, exposing them to homosexual behavior. Such programming can cause confusion in minors, leading them to question their sexual preference, starting at the young age of just 10 years old.

“‘Andi Mack’ is a story about ‘tweens’ figuring out who they are,” Disney Channel expressed in a statement earlier this week. “Everyone involved in the show takes great care in ensuring that it’s appropriate for all audiences and sends a powerful message about inclusion and respect for humanity.”

The story line also gained praise from the GLAAD LGBT advocacy organization.

“With more and more young people coming out as LGBTQ, Andi Mack is reflecting the lives and lived experiences of so many LGBTQ youth around the country,” the organization’s president and CEO, Sarah Kate Ellis, released in a statement. “Television reflects the real life world and today that includes LGBTQ youth who deserve to see their lives depicted on their favorite shows. Disney has been a leader in LGBTQ inclusion and there are so many young people who will be excited to see Cyrus’ story unfold.”

The first episode airs October 27, 2017, at 8:00p | ET.

THE CO-ED SCOUTS OF AMERICA

George Lujack

Published

on

On October 11, 2017, the Boy Scouts of America’s board of directors unanimously agreed to allow girls to join the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, giving girls the opportunity to earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout.

“I’m saying that the Boy Scouts have a standard. You must be a biological boy to be a Boy Scout. You have to be a boy to be a Boy Scout.”

“Where is that written though?”

“In the name, ‘Boy’ Scouts.”
– Ben Shapiro

Not anymore, Ben. This is 2017 and this is the new progressive Boy Scouts of America, who announced that they will begin to allow girls to join their ranks.

What Ben Shapiro said however, is nonetheless true, “You must be a biological boy to be a Boy Scout. You have to be a boy to be a Boy Scout.” If the ‘Boy’ Scouts do not change the name of their organization to “The Scouts,” or something similar, the organization will be taking a stand in the cultural war on the side of liberal progressives over the issue of gender neutrality. Any girl who states, “I am a ‘Boy’ Scout,” will be unwittingly stating that she is a boy, even if she is a genuine scout, the type of girl who likes the scouting activities that the Boy Scouts provide and are involved in.

Although the Boy Scouts’ board of directors voted to allow girls to join their ranks, they were within their First Amendment Constitutionally protected right of freedom of association to deny them entry.

The Girl Scouts of America could wind up being a casualty of the Boy Scouts’ decision to recruit girls into their membership rolls. Back in August, the head of the Girl Scouts accused the Boy Scouts organization of a “covert campaign to recruit girls,” as a way to boost declining membership. If girls across America decide to join the Boy Scouts, en masse, it could mean the end of the Girl Scouts as a viable organization.

Other than the issue of a girl calling herself a “‘Boy’ Scout,” conservatives should not be overly concerned with co-ed scouting. Boys and girls have enjoyed a long history of sharing summer camp activities together in America, without becoming gender neutral. Boys will still be boys and girls will still be girls (most of the time).

“Girls will be boys and boys will be girls it’s a mixed up muddled up shook up world…”
– The Kinks, “Lola

However, the gender-neutral minded cultural elites would like to redefine the gender roles of boys and girls in society and confuse the gender identity of boys and girls, when possible, which is the real issue that is rightfully alarming to most Americans. Progressives have long sought to corrupt and neuter the Boy Scouts through social engineering, as they have likewise done in other institutions, and have now succeeded in doing so.
