    Great video. Sad, though, how we need a video to explain what is common sense. Male-female unions are unique because males and females create children, and the creation of children has huge implications for society. Gee, really? Ya think? And homosexuals cannot procreate? Oh, I get it now!

    Simple and brilliant !

    We need this simple video to help clear the thinking of those who have had their brains scrambled by the intentionally complex and irrational "logic" of marriage redefiners.

    The Alliance Defending Freedom is defending marriage in Oklahoma, and will defend marriage before the Supreme Court alongside Paul Clement.

    I chuckled at the part where it showed the bombs blowing up the letters "DOMA," the bombs representing lawsuits, because I had just visited one of the pro-ss"m" blogs, and most of the posts were about pro-ss"m" lawsuits.

    This will be my first presidential election ever in all of my many years of voting that I will be pulling the Republican lever. (My first Republican vote was cast in the 2010 midterms). This administration is clueless on the economy and clueless on the importance of marriage and responsible procreation; either that, or it is intentionally attempting to create a majority underclass.

    Wow. We as a people are getting good at this.
    You impress and humble me, people.

    Lets keep it up. The picture that is being painted will only become more and more clear, more and more beautiful, more and more pure. Truth.

    Sadly in the marriage corruption movement, there is just no room for family values in the politics of sexual identity.

    "Marriage defines us because marriage describes us."

    Marriage corruption supporters are at war with these truths we hold to be self evident because the light of truth shows them for what they really are; corrupt.

    Outstanding. I'd love to see air on prime time TV as a commercial.

    I thought this was important (from their website for the video,) ". . . Second, they base their deficient legal argument on an inaccurate understanding of what the miscengenation law at issue in Loving v. Virginia actually outlawed. This common misunderstanding popped up twice during the debate at UVA, and I had to correct it. Many people, including many law students, incorrectly believe that the unconstitutional Virginia law banned everyone from having an interracial marriage, but it did not. It banned only white people from having an interracial marriage. Therefore, an African American man could marry a woman of Asian descent in Virginia. Although this would be an interracial marriage, it would have been a legal marriage under the Virginia law, because the man and woman would not be white people. The Supreme Court looked at this racially lopsided law that obviously promoted white supremecy, and rightly declared it unconstitutional.
    Therefore, Loving v. Virginia does not apply to Prop 8 because Prop 8 applies to everyone. Anyone can enter into a marriage of one man and one woman. Prop 8 does not apply in some lopsided fashion, as the Virginia law applied only to white people. Also, not all states had laws banning interracial marriage. Virginia did not have such a law for the first 100 years of its existence. Racial restrictions on marriage to promote racial “purity” are not at all universal like the definition of marriage as one man and one woman. Loving v. Virginia does not mean that Prop 8 is unconstitutional."
