"Religion & Ethics - Same-Sex Marriage: Procreation." BBC. February 24th, 2007:

  • "many children are not brought up in traditional family units
  • many children are brought by only one parent and thus lack role models of each gender
  • many children are badly parented in traditional family units
  • people in same-sex marriages may well not have children, and should not be penalised by concerns about parenting."


Scott Bistrup "Gay Marriage: The Arguments and the Motives" (2004) cites a protester as saying, "murderers, convicted felons of all sorts, even known child molesters are all allowed to freely marry and procreate and do so every day, with hardly a second thought, much less a protest, by these same critics [of gay marriage]."


Scott Bidstrup. "Gay Marriage: The Arguments and the Motives": "3. Same-sex couples aren't the optimum environment in which to raise children. That's an interesting one, in light of who society does allow to get married and bring children into their marriage. Check it out: murderers, convicted felons of all sorts, even known child molesters are all allowed to freely marry and procreate, and do so every day, with hardly a second thought by these same critics. So if children are truly the priority here, why is this allowed?"
