Some quick questions for David Van Gend, arguing that we must discriminate against gay people in law because if they have children (fatuously dismissing the fact that many do already) those children will be deprived of a parent of one gender or other, and this is their “most elemental right and deepest need” – do you think governments should outlaw divorce? Should children with abusive parents be left with the abusive parent so as not to deprive them of a parent of that gender? Should single mothers be forced to re-wed promptly?
And, most importantly – on what freaking basis do you allege that children “have a right” to a mother and a father, given the vast numbers who do not have both, and yet (as you acknowledge) turn out fine?
Still: kudos for actually running an argument in defence of your illogical position. Even one with such massive holes in it as this. It puts you one step ahead of pretty much everyone else advocating for your side.
UPDATE: One final question – do those who hold the view that “children have a right to a father and a mother” think that courts should be forbidden from sending parents to jail, because it’s depriving a child of something to which they have a “right”?
