"We will not restore this nation with public policy alone. It will require public virtue and that emanates from the traditional institutions of family and religion. ... To those who say that marriage doesn't matter, I say: You would not be able to print enough money in 1,000 years to pay for the government you would need if the traditional family continues to collapse."

-- Indiana Republican Congressman and Presidential hopeful Mike Pence during the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition dinner.

Allowing gays to marry is building to marriage, not collapsing it. We're adding more couples, we'll having millions of people around the country fighting to strengthen the institution, to take the sacred values, to support each other, to love each other. Without marriage, what would you want us gays to do? Should we marry out of love, lie to somebody of the opposite sex all our lives? Should we have sex out of marriage, or are you asking that we be celibate all our lives; go through life without the love and support of spouse and the social recognition and civil benefits of that marriage? Would you want me to marry your daughter into a life long lie?
