To Protect Marriage
None of us would want to be told we don’t
have the right to a mother and a father.
The state doesn’t issue a license for friendships or dating. The state doesn’t require us to file with a justice of the peace to share an apartment.... Why regulate marriage?
Because the state has an interest in protecting the future generations of citizens.
Children do best when raised in a family with both a Mom and a Dad. Men and women think differently, and love differently; and these differences provide something unique and necessary for the development of the whole child. We recognize marriage as a civil institution between a man and woman, not because of the love, commitment, and responsibility of the adult spouses, but because of the love, commitment, and responsibility our children need. Marriage is a child-centered institution.
Marriage isn’t a freedom; it’s a constraint, to protect the rights of children to be raised with a mother and a father, the ideal environment.
Vote Yes on the Marriage Amendment. A non-vote is a No vote.
