The current campaign for the Presidency of the United States of America has featured a series of attempts to define Republicans in general and the Republican candidates in particular as being "anti-gay" and "anti-woman'. The recent (and we will grant you idiotic) remarks from the Senatorial candidate in Missouri have not helped turn this aside.
The Democrats say that men and women enjoy the same rights under the Constitution. This statement is one we endorse. But they then go on to say that there is no difference between men and women, and that two people of the same sex constitute just as much of a marriage as two people of opposite sexes. Those two statements are a load of horse crap.
The bottom line on the difference between men and women is this:
If the entire human race got wiped out tomorrow, save for one man and one hundred women, then within fourteen years that man could father 1400 kids, with the first 700 couples becoming of child-bearing age in the fourteenth year. From that year forward exponetially more breeding pairs would mature and breed, and the planet would be re-populated to a large extent within 50 years.
On the other hand, one hundred men and one woman? I can imagine several scenarios, and not one of them leads to the re-establishment of a human population.
The acceptance or denial of this - words fail me - OBVIOUS FACT - is what informs the philosophies of the Left and the Right over the roles of the sexes and marriage in society.
