    From Loving v. Virginia,

    ” The freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men.”

    Why not interview an actual social scientist instead of a mormon lawyer who heads a right wing think tank?? Also, “complementarianism” is a religious doctrine and is not science! Does the LDS church own all the media in Utah?

    FYI – The AMA, APA, ASA, and all other major medical and science associations all agree that sexual orientation has no effect on parenting and child development. The only people who dispute this are the religious right – every court in the last 10 years or so that has ruled on a case had agreed.
