  1. It struck me in listening to the interview that the definition of marriage as the union of a man and a woman to produce children was misunderstood by the participants
    arguing for the right of same sex couples to be married. They claimed that because same sex couples could “have” children that they were not excluded by that definition. But same sex couples cannot “have” children in the sense of producing them together.
