[David] Blankenhorn and [Stanley] Kurtz also understand the causal connection between the law, attitudes, and behavior. That’s why they argue so forcefully against same-sex marriage. Blankenhorn asserts that anyone concerned about the welfare of children cannot be a supporter of same-sex marriage. He writes, “One can believe in same-sex marriage. One can believe that every child deserves a mother and a father. One cannot believe both.” Why? Because, as data from other countries show, “redefining marriage to include gay and lesbian couples would eliminate entirely in law, and weaken still further in culture, the basic idea of a mother and a father for every child.” Blankenhorn goes so far as to say that he is amazed at how indifferent gay activists about the negative effects of same-sex marriage on children. Many of them, he documents, deny that marriage has anything to do with children.
