“Marriage is an institution designed to protect children,” said a Lou Dobb guest, David Blackenhorn. “Marriage is pro child. Therefore we need to should save the INSTITUTION of marriage.”
Yet Mr. Blackenhorn argued himself into a very tight corner, when he said children should have both a mother and a father and in the next breathe referred to broken homes. All the guest succeeded in doing was begging the question. The perfect opportunity for the opposing guest to jump in – I do not know who he is- but he was not that adept at the issue – certainly not in the activist format.
By the way- Ms. California, a topic prelude to the discussion, made the question into the political firestorm it has become, for 2 simple reasons:
1. She took on the assignment of promoting the agenda of NOM; and
2. She could have defused the question – and had her free speech on a different less public forum.
Lou, may the god/dess of debate and LGBT culture bless you, before you take a topic on, call me- anytime; the literature and research shows that children in LGBT families are particularly well adjusted. But thanks for asking the big question – ” how does gay marriage negatively impact family unit and how does it hurt straight marriage?”
Oh and Mr. B – there IS SOMETHING SPECIAL about my kids life and they have 2 MOMS. Just look at them, please!
