    Pay attention:
    1. Sex is only for procreation.
    2. Sex outside marriage is wrong.
    3. You have to get married to have sex.
    4. Which is only for procreation.
    5. If you aren't married you can't have sex.
    6. If you have sex it has to be for procreation.
    7. If you have sex for any other reason it is bad for society.
    8. Society only has interest in procreative sex.
    9. So if you are gay, you are bad.
    10. If you are having sex you are bad- unless you are married and having children.

      It's about controlling the sex and baby machines.

        that clergy and religious groups want to maintain for themselves: it is an issue they can rabble rouse and bang the drum about, thus making rain for their organizations and justifying their authoritarian and hierarchal organizations and the power they hold.

        Women, women's bodies, dead fetuses and gay folk aren't really the objective, they are just the means.

    •  it's also about welfare... (0+ / 0-)

      traditional marriage is the bulwark that social and fiscal conservatives put up against welfare payments to families with dependent children.  But that's secondary to it being about other people and sex -- these boneheads aren't against good old fashioned patriarchal sex which is set up for wealthy white men's convenience.
