    I wanted to attend David McCullough's program tonight so much, but was unable to because I live too far away. As far as I am concerned he is a master writer. I just finished reading "John Adams" and actually felt more intelligent from reading it. I am now reading it a second time because it is such a masterpiece. Families are so important and if you read "John Adams" you will gain a better understanding of why they are. Our founding fathers were so intelligent! Much more so than most people today, even college educated ones. Learning to them was their life and they loved reading the great works and writing. The amount of recording of history that John Adams left us is incredible! Just read the book and you will see. Thank goodness for people like David McCullough for he is a master too!

    RE: first two comments

    Oh boy, here we go... forget 90% of the comments because the subject has been hijacked, like usual.

    First, what on earth does this article have to do with homosexuality?

    Second, by forming families in which the child is denied either a father or a mother, the child loses. Every child has a right to his or her natural parents. Both of them. A woman simply can't be a father, neither can a man be a mother. Anybody who thinks otherwise hasn't raised both sexes (they come wired differently from birth, in spite of feminist thinking otherwise), or watched their opposite sex spouse interacting with those children. Or looked at the social science with an unbiased eye.

    If family is so important, why deny legal recognition of some families to others?
