While proponents of same-sex marriage say that “It is about time,” and “It is the right thing to do,” consider this scenario: Little Johnny and Debbie go to school. In school they are taught there are all kinds of families, even ones with two moms and two dads.

But at home Johnny and Debbie learn from their parents that homosexuality is taboo. Then the children say to the teacher their parents have taught them that homosexual marriage is wrong. Will they have to go through sensitivity training? And then suddenly their parents are wrong. What strife!

The question is: What will happen to Johnny and Debbie? Is this the beginning of a slippery slope? Are we changing our culture at the expense of the many who still believe this is taboo?

Where will we stop?
