Holy Toolbox Responds to Gay Marriage in Canada
Hmmmmm...I think there are some parents who are going to be pretty pissed about this statement:
From the Associated Press via MSNBC.com:
The most overlooked and disenfranchised group in the current debate about marriage is that of children," Calgary Bishop Frederick Henry said in a recent statement. "The issue is not whether traditional marriage, as it stands, is a perfect institution, but whether society and especially children are better off with it than without. Families with both mothers and fathers are generally better for children than those with only mothers or only fathers. Biological parents usually protect and provide for their children more effectively than non-biological ones."
Way to twist the data and manipulate word choice, you tool box. That's the best you can do to support your stance against gay marriage? Maybe you and Tom the Troll should get together.
I'm not sure where you're getting your data (the same database that Trollboy gets his, I bet), but here's what I found:
