Delaware Family Policy Council working to ban divorce, penalize single parents, make reproduction a marital requirement (apparently)

We ran down the holes in the logic yesterday. I'm not going to rehash it again.

If the other side wants to keep making points (and stock photo memes) that do not at all pertain to the policy of civil marriage licensing and framing the fair application of that right to same-sex couples as if it's some sort of missile set to destroy the two-parent, legal married, hetero-headed homes that choose to have children, then they can have fun doing that. But the political tactic is only making their movement look desperate, and their myopic way of shutting out the millions of families that don't look like their carefully posed stock photos is only making them look mean.
