Two People of the Same Sex Do Harm Raising Kids

[A] wise and loving society never intentionally creates fatherless or motherless families. . . .

The two most loving mothers in the world can’t be a father to a little boy.  Love can’t equip mothers to teach a little boy how to be a man.  Likewise, the two most loving men can’t be a mother to a child.  Love does little to help a man teach a little girl how to be a woman.  Can you imagine two men guiding a young girl through her first menstrual cycle or helping her through the awkwardness of picking out her first bra?  Such a situation might make for a funny television sitcom but not a very good real-life situation for a young girl!

Here are some questions to think about.  How can to loving, homosexual men teach a young boy to care for and love a woman?  How will the boy observe this in a home where it doesn’t exist?  What will two loving moms teach a little girl about men?  How healthy will that picture be?  Don’t same-sex relationships, by definition fail to provide many of the important things children need, since they are missing one of that child’s natural parents and one essential part of humanity?
