If there's reason to believe that a child might be in danger, as is the case when the biological parents prove their lack some combination of judgement and self-control by conceiving a child out of wedlock, the government must protect the child.What is inherently dangerous about conceiving a child without first procuring a piece of paper that says "married" on it?There are thousands of perfectly wonderful people for whom the institution of marriage is irrelavent and unecessary. I can respect your religious convictions and that you personally would choose to be married before conceiving. But to imply that those who choose otherwise are deviant and dangerous? That is where religous conviction turns to zealotry and my eyes glaze over.Meanwhile, my parents were married when I was born and my mother beat the crap out of me. Marriage doesn't guarantee safety and harmony for any child.It takes all kinds, but I have to admit, I cannot begin to comprehend the minds that work like yours. I am certain you would feel likewise for me, but then, I have no desire to remove loved children from loving parents.
