Homosexual parenting fuels tyranny
Perhaps the greatest fraud in the multi-decade campaign to normalize homosexual parenting and domestic relationships is the notion that this libertine ethic is consistent with the view that the state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation. This claim is false and dishonest in at least two ways, and despite the transparent dishonesty of these claims, social conservatives have, for some reason, been very muted in challenging activists on these points.

We are ‘equals’

They are among eight couples – four heterosexual, four gay – taking their case to the courts, arguing the law is discriminatory.

Gay Couples Begin Attack on U.S. Marriage Law
By John Schwartz
Joanne Pedersen tried to add her spouse to her federal health insurance on Monday. She was rejected. Again. The problem is that while Ms. Pedersen is legally married to Ann Meitzen under Connecticut law, federal law does not recognize same-sex unions. So a health insurance matter that is all but automatic for most married people is not allowed for them under federal law.

Government Implements Same-Sex Benefits, Furthering End-Run Around Marriage
Federal agencies are implementing a directive from President Obama that extends even more health care benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees – undermining the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). DOMA defines marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman for purposes of any federal rules, regulations or interpretations of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States. The president unilaterally ordered a change to the 1997 Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) passed by Congress to include a 24-hour “leave without pay” (LWOP) benefit to domestic partners. John Berry, the director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management – the human resources arm for 2.15 million federal employees – admitted in his Sept. 10 memo to federal workers: “Although FMLA was never amended for these purposes, President Obama continues to support this LWOP policy with a current emphasis to extend coverage to Federal employees with same-sex domestic partners.”
