The whole issue of same-sex marriage is really about the normalization of homosexuality rather than marriage. The meaning and direction of sexuality is to bring about the union of man and woman, and in this way give humanity posterity, and thus a future. This is the determination internal to the essence of sexuality. Everything else is against sexuality’s intrinsic meaning and direction. This is a point we need to hold firm, even if it is not pleasing to our age.

Behaviors are changeable. There are serious medical and psychiatric illnesses and risks associated with the homosexual lifestyle. Pediatricians, mental health professionals, physicians, nurses, school counselors, parents, politicians and the media have a clear legal and moral responsibility to inform the public of this. Let us hope the U.S. Supreme Court will recognize the obvious and act swiftly in favor of marriage.
