Women and same-sex marriage… hmmm.

Kristin is my finder-of-all-interesting-things to think and talk about and this morning I read this short post to Faith and Family ‘s blog that she sent me in an email a couple of days ago. Faith and Family is a Catholic magazine and blog.

The entry is really short but I wanted to quote so this blog post isn’t so mysterious, writer Rebecca Teti says,

I haven’t seen anyone make the argument but it seems obvious to me that for the law to say that same-sex marriage is the moral equivalent of one-man, one-woman marriage is simultaneously to proclaim that the unique gifts of women are officially, by government decree, not in any way important.

I need some more time to sort out my exact thoughts on this idea… It seems the post is suggesting that  removing the prospect of procreation from a marriage in a same-sex union, it is an assault on women because we are the bearers of children. Or something like that…

Again, I’m not sure how I feel about this particular angle or argument, and wanted to throw it out there to see if anyone else has anything to say about it, however it does touch on some things that I feel very strongly about when it comes to women and homosexuality (which I’m going to write about this evening).

If you have thoughts, please share!

    It’s not saying it’s the moral equivalent, as the law says nothing about morals. It’s saying it is the legal equivalent.
