Mindless Attempt at Cognitive Dissonance

"They" are going to keep doing this until we repeatedly demonstrate that it is preposterous nonsense. The only children affected by same-sex marriage recognition are those who are being raised by gay couples. They enjoy the improved stability and  security derived from having married parents.

Joseph Backholm of Family Policy Institute of Washington:
Marriage is the union of one man and one woman for good reason. Marriage is society’s way of bringing men and women together so that children can be raised by, and cared for by, their mother and father — the people responsible for bringing them into the world. It is the most-important, child-focused institution of society and we will fight to preserve it.
The explanation for this idiocy is that people like Backholm (whose father is a preacher) have a religious objection that they are attempting to secularize. There is no coherent argument supporting the notion that marriage equality has any effect, whatsoever, on so-called "traditional" marriage.
