Minnesotan: Children Matter in Marriage Debate


Connie Rossini of New Ulm, MNĀ writes to the editor:

"The proponents of same-sex "marriage" would have us believe that marriage is all about how two adults feel for each other. It's not. It's about the well-being of children. Throughout history, there have been many types of relationships - sexual or not - among adults, but few have been called marriage. Marriage has always had an exclusive role in society. It ties mothers and fathers to their biological children and gives the children their best chance to thrive.

Not all heterosexual couples are capable of having children, but they can all provide a mother and father to the children they may take in. Same-sex couples can't do this. Men cannot be moms. Women cannot be dads..."
