A 30-year-old gay man from the United States has said he believes Americans have suffered a “great loss” in allowing same-sex marriages to take place.
The man decided to speak out using the pseudonym Paul Rosnick for fear of being targeted by gay rights activists.
He disclosed: “The big secret in the LGBT community is that there are a significant number of gays and lesbians who oppose same-sex marriage”.
Bald faced lie
Rosnick said his opposition to same-sex marriage began when he realised that the argument in support of it is “predicated on one audaciously bald-faced lie”.
In an article for online magazine The Federalist, he wrote: “It only takes a moment of objective thought to realize that the union of two men or two women is a drastically different arrangement than the union of a man and a woman.”
According to Rosnick: “It seems as though most people view marriage as little more than a love contract.”
Bedrock of society
He added: “People have forgotten that the defining feature of marriage, the thing that makes marriage marriage, is the sexual complementarity of the people involved.”
He said that: “Redefining marriage to include same-sex couples relegates this once noble institution to nothing more than a lousy love contract. This harms all of society by turning marriage, the bedrock of society, into a meaningless anachronism.”
Rosnick continued: “At its core, the institution of marriage is all about creating and sustaining families.”
Last week a Canadian author, who was raised by her homosexual father and his multiple partners, also expressed opposition to same-sex marriage.
Dawn Stefanowicz, who has written a book about the impact her upbringing has had, said that she is one of many brought up in the homosexual community who support traditional marriage.
Mrs Stefanowicz said: “For many of us adult children of gay parents, we have come to the conclusion that same-sex marriage is more about promoting adults’ ‘desires’ than about safeguarding children’s rights to know and be raised by their biological parents.”
