Same-sex ‘marriage’ is worse for kids than divorce: Idaho’s attorney

As the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments over the constitutionality of three states’ marriage protection laws Monday, the attorney defending Idaho’s law argued that redefining marriage to include same-sex couples would lead to even worse outcomes than no-fault divorce.

Monte Stewart, a private attorney who is defending both Idaho’s and Nevada’s marriage protection laws, said that as bad as no-fault divorce has been for children in Idaho and other states, allowing gay “marriage” would only lead to more devastation. “Pulling the man-woman meaning out of marriage and going with genderless marriage will be the coup de grace,” Stewart said. “We think the effects will be much worse.”

“This is a contest between two different messages,” Stewart added. “The message of man-woman marriage is: ‘Men, you’re valuable and important in the upbringing of the children you bring into this world. Women, you are valuable and important in the upbringing of children you bring into this world.’ Genderless marriage does not send that message, indeed it undermines it.”   (more...)
