    Fathers disappear from households across America

    Would you rather see a child in a oprhanage or a stable homosexual family? Gay parents can provide homes for children in need and never contribute to the problem of unwanted children. they are undoubtedly a positive for those who need help

    Thank goodness for separation of church and state.

    The Archbishop may be knowledgeable concerning Catholic doctrine and dogma, but he knows nothing of the law.

    That something is ‘historical’ or an ‘institution,’ is not justification to deny citizens their civil liberties.

    And as already correctly noted, if ‘[m]arriage is the foundation of a just society, as it protects the most vulnerable among us, children,’ then same-sex couples’ access to marriage is just as vital, as it protects children in same-sex relationships as well.

    The Archbishop might also want to consider attending confession soon, to seek forgiveness for the sin of arrogance, and harboring ill-will toward his fellow man.

    So you would rather see a child go through a life of misery with parents that either a. dont want them or b. cant provide for them, becuase why? All I read in that statement was you would rather see a child suffer and most likely end up in jail over them leading a productive life prorivded by their two proud fathers or mothers.. Or is that sarcasm? Damn they need that font, especially on this website

    Um....no. It's called sarcasm. When I see absurdity I often respond with absurdity.
