Gold Nuggets

  • I support marriage because every child deserves a mom and a dad.
  • People have a right to live as they choose, they don’t have the right to redefine marriage for all of us.
  • Marriage is between a husband and wife. The people do not want marriage to be anything but that. We do not want the Legislature or the Courts changing that definition for us today or for our children tomorrow.
  • Marriage is about bringing together men and women so children can have mothers and fathers.
  • Do we want to teach the next generation that one-half of humanity —either mothers or fathers —are dispensable, unimportant? Children are confused enough right now with sexual messages. Let’s not confuse them further.
  • Love is a great thing. But marriage isn’t just any kind of love; it’s the special love of husband and wife for each other and their children.
  • If medical proxies aren’t working, let’s fix that problem. If people need health care, let’s get them health care. Don’t mess with marriage.
  • The issue isn’t benefits, it is marriage. Local folks can decide benefits. This is about the meaning of marriage, our most basic social institution for protecting children.
  • High rates of divorce are one more reason we should be strengthening marriage, not conducting radical social experiments on it.
  • Two men might each be a good father, but neither can be a mom. The ideal for children is the love of their own mom and dad. No same-sex couple can provide that.
  • Every man and woman who marries is capable of giving any child they create (or adopt) a mother and a father. No same-sex couple can do this. It’s apples and oranges.
  • Marriage isn’t just about the two individuals but also children, family and society — and about the benefits society gains from marriage as an institution.
