Then I got to that part of my paper and thought, "Screw it! Give 'em marriage!" and so I wrote that same-sex marriages should be legalized, and all restrictions on same-sex couples adopting children should be lifted. Hey, it's my utopian world, I can do what I want.
I did have a good defense other than "the Christian Right is stupid." Marriage has been an institution of change back from yonder years when women were property and their belongings were actually their husbands belongings, and oh, let's not forget interracial marriages were once illegal because people where stupid bigots.
So I closed with this zinger: Whether the lifestyle is against your moral or religious views is irrelevant because civil liberties and equality are being sought, and those are protected for all citizens under the U.S. Constitution. (The wording is irking me, but I'll fix it when it isn't 1am.)
