This Week In Traditional Marriage

So here is an example of my twisted sense of humor.

To celebrate Iowa's forward thinking stance on civil marriage, I've decided to start a weekly feature. In honor of the crusade to protect the religious institution of marriage, I'm going to play with the rhetoric used to argue against legal recognition of same-sex couples. You know, that children are best raised by both a mother and a father, and that same-sex couples do not provide a good environment to raise a family.

Seriously, folks: good parenting does not require a man and a woman, but it does require patience and commitment -- which apparently some traditional families lack.

This week has an extra special article from JSOnline, featuring two families:
A man police say beat his 3-year-old son to death for messing up the dining room and a woman who police say shook her 2-month-old son to death because he would not sleep were each charged with homicide Friday, one day after Milwaukee's mayor and police chief warned of a crisis in family violence.

Remember, same-sex marriage is a threat to traditional families such as these. But as a gay male, what do I know..
