The destruction of the American family is more likely a cause than a consequence of the gay-rights movement. But what began with easy divorce and widespread cohabitation may be brought to total meltdown with same-sex “marriage” and the idea that gender is “fluid.” Government schools have already been indoctrinating children in the “new normal” with books like “Heather Has Two Mommies.” Radical cultural revolution hides behind corruption of the language. The word “parent,” for example, didn’t used to require the adjective “biological.” In biology, each of the two parents contributes half of their offspring’s DNA. It was the parental surrogates that needed an adjective, such as “adoptive” or “foster.”

Biologically, two mothers is an absurdity (although modern science is trying to create a hybrid mother out of one woman’s cell nucleus transplanted into another woman’s cytoplasm). But having no daddy in the home is tragically common. And in 2012, 40.7 percent of all American births and 72.2 percent of births to non-Hispanic blacks occurred out of wedlock. One purpose of matrimony is to establish paternity, although even with illegitimacy and divorce, the identity of the baby’s father is usually known and recorded.
