Sure, we have kids that we raise together, but anyone can breed. And I know single and gay parents who have done as good a job as we have and some who've made fewer mistakes than we have. And I know married people who can't have kids and older folks well past child bearing age who have gotten married. So arguments that marriage is an institution between a man and a woman for the purpose of having children and preserving the traditional family don't make sense to me.
Unless, of course, the next proposition will take the right to marry away from those who are sterile, those too old to start families, those who refuse to sign a commitment to bear children, and those who through affairs, divorce, alcoholism, drug abuse or cultural 'difference' have torn traditional families asunder.
Is that the slippery slope the pro-Prop. 8 people keep talking about?
