Our attorney general’s attack on marriage equality and adoption is based on a notion that different-sex couples provide better parenting than gay couples (a skewing of findings that show that two parents are generally better than one).
If dual-sex parents are the gold standard and Utah can tolerate nothing less, then we’ll need to eliminate single-parent households.
But good news! Since marriage’s purpose is to raise children, there’s a simple solution. In cases of unwed mothers, parental death or divorce, children should be taken from the now-unworthy single parent, and forcibly placed into the custody of one of those childless couples that we haven’t yet figured out how to keep from getting married.
If the reasons for denying gay marriage are valid, and we are all equal, then straight people — and their kids — are in for some very bad times.
