    A brilliantly exposed irony. Pandering to conservative homophobic sentiment and breaking with tradition weakens Judaism. "Homophobic", you say? Yes, for what is clear in the "stop gay marriage to protect the children" argument,is the unbalanced stress on the dubious claim of relative value in being raised by any heterosexualcouple whether ones natural parents or not, (which runscounter tothe science),together with a failure to offer a better alternative to a loving gay couple for the kids or a focus on things that make a real difference in children's health such as neglect, parental mental illness, drug abuse, lack of time and other resources, etc. (of which there are many which dwarf any speculative deficiency in homosexual parentage. It is this latter failure,repeatedly absent in the argument against gay parenting and marriage that is most revealing. If there were 50 ways of being a bad parent,why not stick with these? Because the argument is more about the homophobia than the health and well being of the children.
