Gay Marriage, the Family, and the Church

“Gays and lesbians have something so many others don’t: a fundamental understanding about what love really, truly is, how it has to be fought for, how difficult it can be, and what an elusive prize it remains. Our partnerships don’t come easily; we fight for them, fighting with society and often with each other. And we have an innate ability to form families — not traditional two-kids-and-the-dog type families, but extended families. Look around your queer holiday table — the “island of misfit toys,” as I once called it — and you’ll see how the great despair and oppression we sometimes feel carves out a cavern that we then fill with love and joy, the love and joy of those related by blood and of those related by love.” —Charles Karel Bouley

Moreover, the United States has a very important election coming up. The political parties took stands on laws barring same-sex marriages in platforms adopted at their recent national conventions.

The Democratic platform supports the movement to get equal treatment under the law for same-gender couples. The Republican platform affirms the rights of states and the federal government not to recognize same-sex marriage. It also backs a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
