Oregon court voids 3,000 gay marriages.
SALEM, Ore. (Reuters) - Oregon's Supreme Court invalidated 3,000 marriage licenses on Thursday that had been issued to same-sex couples a year ago, saying they were unconstitutional.
The court said Multnomah County, which includes Portland and is Oregon's most populous county, had violated the state constitution's definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman. I'm definately not a bible pounder and try to have an open mind to most things. When it comes down to it, I really don't have a problem with homosexual marriage with one exeption. Adoption of children. If you legalize their marriage, then they would have the right to adopt. I do have a problem with that! All children benefit from having a mommy and daddy influence as a role model. If you ask,"what about divorce?" Sure moms and dads do divorce, but the kids are not introduced to an "alternative lifestyle". They STILL have hetrosexuality as their defining role model. Think having two moms that sleep together, or two dads, doesn't influence children? Think again. It does. Homosexuals can do anything they want, just leave kids out of it. http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=671423
