The committee had no answer for her.

Doug (gay man): "marriage isn't about love, commitment and responsibility--it's about kids. Ignore the media push and adult demands for same-sex marriage."

"It's not homophobic to oppose same-sex marriage!"

"MN legislators, passing this bill says your wife or husband is not important in the raising of your children!"

Prof. Robert Lopez (humanities scholar, bisexual man):

"Couples deserve to have love recognized, but I know as a child raised by my lesbian mother and her partner that there is something missing when a child is raised by 2 same-sex parents."

"We've heard a lot from same-sex marriage activists who feel they’ve earned property rights to children, but we haven’t heard enough from children’s rights advocates in a full debate."
