Concerning gay marriage: It is physically impossible for two men to be married. It is physically impossible for two women to be married.

The definition of “marriage” is “to join and become one.” Two men cannot become one. Two women cannot become one. A man and a woman can become one.

And what is the one? The one is the child. There is no marriage if there is no child.

To be wed and to be married are two different states of being. If you remember, you were not married until you consummated your wedding vows. Upon conception, you became married, the child being part of the man and part of the woman. Two become one.

Again, the progressives have forgotten the child. And it seems that the conservatives have also forgotten the child.
