Why should anyone object to same-sex marriage and parenting? Psychologist Dr. Bill Maier and researcher Glenn Stanton want to help readers explain to family, friends, neighbors and colleagues why the same-sex family is not a good idea. Based on current social science research, the authors show that gay "marriage" and same-sex parenting fall far short of offering to children in particular and society in general the same benefits as traditional marriage. In fact, there are very good and compelling reasons to oppose same-sex marriage and parenting whether or not you hold to Christian-based moral convictions. Maier and Stanton provide clear counterarguments to those who advocate gay marriage, and make the case that legalizing this arrangement will very likely be harmful to the larger community and to the next generation. This book will help any reader understand the real issues and make the case for the unique and irreplaceable benefits of traditional marriage.
