A second function of the family unit is the preparation of children to be solid and productive contributors to society. This education is best accomplished at home by a loving father and mother. It is accomplished when children see their parents functioning and interacting with others in their communities and learn to imitate the things they have seen. Both parents have a vital role in this. The child does not get the best instruction when the family unit is broken such as in the case of a single-parent family or when both parents are the same sex. The government-controlled schools have tried to usurp this societal training function from the families and the results have been disastrous (but that is a discussion for a different article).
A third function of the family unit is religious training. Children are a gift from God and parents have a fiduciary responsibility to raise them in accordance with his precepts. Again, this is best accomplished in a traditional two-parent family in which both the father and the mother complement each other in the instruction of the children. Proper religious training can be done successfully in a single-parent family but it is not the best option. It can't be done in a family in which both parents are the same sex because that situation violates the biblical teachings on homosexuality.
Children need both a strong father and mother in order to reach their full potential. This is the way God designed the family unit to work. Anything else is at best less than optimal and at worst detrimental to society. We should always strive for the optimal solution. As such we can see the damage that same-sex marriage is doing to the family unit and it must be opposed. To do less is to advocate the destruction of society as we know it.
