Pence's anti-gay legacy lives on in Indiana's GOP platform

Mike Pence
As hate group, American Family Association points out, the Indiana Republican platform continues to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. A delusional party ignores the legal and constitutional reality that marriage includes the unions of same-sex couples. That toothpaste isn't going back in the tube.

According to AFA:
Indiana Republican Party activists overwhelmingly voted Saturday to reaffirm language first inserted in their platform when Vice President Mike Pence was governor that defines marriage as a union "between a man and a woman."

"It's very good news," responds Micah Clark of AFA Indiana.
Just try to make sense of this logic pretzel:
He [Micah Clark] tells OneNewsNow that party leaders wanted to remove the language and replace it with language about "loving adults" instead.

"And under the name of inclusivity or being inclusive," he says, "they actually excluded 52 percent of the homes in Indiana headed by married couples."

So instead of inclusive, Clark says they were being exclusive.
Does anyone understand this fuckwit?

AFA being AFA, they conclude:
"All the research shows that children who come from an intact home with a married mother and father do better in school," he explains. "They're less likely to be involved in crime, they're healthier, and they just have better risks of success than children in other family formations."
I have no idea who or what they are quoting. That research that they are so fond of does not consider gay couples. It compares married, present parents to single-parent families or children of divorced parents. Numerous studies published to respected peer-reviewed journals conclude that children raised by gay couples are just as healthy, happy and secure as those raised by heterosexual parents.

In advance of the Supreme Court's deliberations over United States v. Windsor the usual suspects paid Mark Regnerus to author a competing narrative. He managed to prove that the children of dysfunctional families have problems. Revelation!
