Children's rights and the gay marriage debate NC

My little bio over on the right says that I comment on "children's rights." What does that mean?

Well, when two people want something, there either has to be a compromise or one person must defer to the other.

When it comes to the rights and dignity of children, adults must defer their desires and whims to what is best for children. For example, if parents want to go out to dinner, they cannot leave the children alone. The must hire a sitter, arrange for their supper, give instructions and respond to an emergency.

Regarding gay marriage, when two adults feel they want to be "consenting adults" to a gay partnership where they raise children, they are depriving those children of their right to a mother and father who are married to one another.

Watch Bishop Peter J. Jugis's video below.  And on Tuesday, May 8, vote FOR marriage in NC.
