I do not believe all opponents of gay marriage are hateful. By recognizing parental rights and obligations of the non-biological parent in same-sex couples, the situation of the children may improve in terms of financial, social and psychological stability. The use of the reasonable welfare standard has implications for the status attributed to a parental characteristic or situational condition. There is no right to have children What does mother- or fatherhood then mean? When we as Christians lose this fundamental understanding of what it means to be human, it is not surprising when other errors of thought emerge.

To imply that including same-sex couples within the definition of marriage will somehow be detrimental or even destructive for the institution is to suggest gay people must be inherently poisonous. One could argue that the distinction in access between poor and rich is not discriminatory because it is based on a relevant difference, namely the differential effect on the welfare of the future child. That over-used argument: Should women have compromised their right to vote?
