The National Organization for Marriage
(NOM) believes kids with gay parents will grow up to resent being
raised in a same-sex family.
Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and
president of the Ruth Institute, a project of NOM, was among the
speakers at the National Organization for Marriage's (NOM) rally on
the Nation Mall calling on the Supreme Court to uphold two laws,
Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which exclude
gay couples from marriage or from receiving the benefits of marriage.
In addressing the crowd, Morse said
children in 40 years would ask the current generation, “What were
“They're going to say, 'Dad, you and
your partner are lovely guys. I love you dad. But did you really
think I would never need a mom? What were you thinking?'”
“'Mom, I know you love me, you and
your partner are nice ladies, but the biological connection that was
so important to you, do you think it would never be important to me?
What were you thinking?'”
“What were you thinking? That's what
they're going to ask us.” (The video is embedded on this page.
