The prayer never specifically targets any group. It simply stated proven facts about what circumstances are best for children. :shrug:
An interesting thing about France (if you didn’t know):
Marriage has been legally defined in the constitution as between one man and one woman for the purpose of creating a family. As an alternate option to full-on marriage, the French government recognizes PACS – civil solidarity pacts (pacte civil de solidarité), aka “marriage lite;” much like civil unions but with customizable legal terms – that are open to any two individuals regardless of gender.
IMHO, I think France’s experience is very telling that civil unions will not be sufficient for gay marriage activists should the United States choose to pursue that route. Clearly, groups in France are still actively lobbying/striking for marriage open to couples of the same gender even though all consenting adults have access to “marriage your way.”
In other words, it’s becoming clear that these groups want marriage to be open to any two individuals, regardless of gender, even if such a union exists outside of traditional marriage.
