Among opponents of civil marriage equality, anti-gay animus always trumps concern for the welfare of children. The latest example is provided by Family Policy Institute of Washington.
On the one hand, FPIW is promoting the Heritage Foundation article “Marriage Protects Women and Children from Violence”, calling it “A good article on one often overlooked benefit of marriage.”
In working to bar same-sex couples from access to civil marriage, FPIW and NOM are punishing children who happen to have gay or lesbian parents by barring those parents from access to civil marriage and the security and stability that it provides.
Only anti-gay animus could prompt FPIW and NOM to make the heinous decision to prioritize marriage discrimination over reducing children’s vulnerability to violence.
