There already IS “marriage equality.” Any gay man can marry the exact same set of people that any straight man can, and the same goes for lesbians and straight women.
What “marriage equality” really means is “using the power of government to redefine society’s most basic institution to fit our personal, private preference.”
That’s exactly correct. Homosexuals are already subject to the same regulations as heterosexuals. I can understand their cry for acceptance, but even marriage does not make them equal. When and only when a gay couple can produce children ON THEIR OWN, will they be equal.
I’m all for giving them all the legal rights straight couples get with marriage, except where adoption is concerned. Legalizing s/s marriage will set the stage for courts to set adoption quotas to ensure that same sex couples have equal access to orphaned children without reguard to what’s best for the child.
