This is again an tired and not realistic or viable idea. Look, the state lets opposite sex people marry for any reason , any time, any time length. Every time the state lets some male / female couple marry for 26 hours and then divorce, lets some one marry multiple times, blesses the marriage of couples incapable of having babies, either due to medical reasons or by default of age, they prove a mockery of this argument. Marriage both legal and spiritual is far more than procreation and baby making. The church originally need more procreation of their faithful to create them as to gain them a dominate position among the different religions, and then to keep their money base increasing. Every religion comes down to money at it’s base. However we already have enough people in the world, we have a huge population. Not a worry if some people don’t have babies. As long as infertile couples or those unable to PRODUCE new babies are allowed to get married, don’t give me the crap about states having a right to keep marriage to procreation purposes. Hugs
Arizona argues its same-sex marriage ban protects procreation
The US state of Arizona is arguing its gay marriage ban protects children, procreation, and straight parents.
Attorneys for the state filed papers in the District Court for Arizona this past Wednesday (23 July). The legal team maintains the prohibition has nothing to do with LGBTI citizens.
‘…The State regulates marriage for the primary purpose of channeling potentially procreative sexual relationships into enduring unions for the sake of joining children to both their mother and their father,’ Arizona’s lawyers wrote in court papers, according to MSNBC.
‘Same-sex couples can never provide a child with both her biological mother and her biological father,’ the state continued.
‘When a same-sex couple takes steps to create a child, they must involve at least one person of the opposite sex, and that involved third party will be a biological parent of the created child.’
The Alliance Defending Freedom, an anti-marriage equality organization, is assisting in Arizona’s defense.
According to the advocacy website Freedom to Marry the four couples in this case brought their suit against the western state in January. The plaintiffs are arguing the marriage ban violates the Constitution’s guarantee of due process and equal protection.
In 2008 November state voters approved an anti-marriage constitutional amendment.
