RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I see Ms. Gallagher defining the meaning of marriage as a state institution that recognizes and confers rights upon marriages that create (or could possibly create) children.
I see her opposition to gay marriages as primarily that they can not reproduce, but she also recognizes that marriage confers benefits from the state. Benefits that people in gay unions are being held back from.
Is there a reason that these men and women should not have the same benefits (health care, taxes, social acceptability) as straight couples gain through marriage? It seems unfair to me that the state should confer benefits upon one group, but not another based on either their gender, or their reproductive ability.
Does Ms. Gallagher agree/disagree?
