Well I'd like to bring in some personal experience with this. I am very friendly with a gay couple, and they are raising a child fine. A lot of people accept that and see no problem with it. The child is happy and healthy, if that's not a family I don't know what is.I can't vouch for the integrity of Chick-Fil-A's top representatives but I certainly hope their hearts are in the right place.
Also, I've grown weary of the people who claim those who support the traditional family are on the wrong side of history comparing them to the civil rights movement. Civil rights was an issue which produced violent outbursts and tension. Whites shouted at and beat blacks who integrated their schools, restaurants, and public facilities. The recent Supreme Court case returning to California's Proposition 8 has shown those who support marriage between a man and a woman to be respectful but firm in what they believe in.
Only a man can impregnate a woman. It's biologically impossible for it to be any other way. Men and women also serve important complementary purposes in a family. Men reinforce discipline whereas women act as the caretakers of young children teaching them important lessons into adolescence and adulthood.
I'm not a radical who would block access to abortion clinics or condemn homosexuality-I respect gays for who they are-but two women or two men in a civil union do not constitute a family and never will.
So what, is there some sort of magical spell not allowing men to do this as well? My mum and dad have played both these roles for me.Men reinforce discipline whereas women act as the caretakers of young children teaching them important lessons into adolescence and adulthood.
