Rowland Straight into Controversy

I just think that this question, and not just tonight, but overall frames it to where it polarizes people. They have to be in a category that if they believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, then they hate gays. I have friends who are gay. I’ve worked with people who are gay. I have utmost respect for them. I do not hate them, but I believe marriage is between a man and a woman.

Homosexuality is an alternative lifestyle. That doesn’t make it a marriage. Some people have group sex. Should we allow two men and three women to marry? Should we allow polygamy with one man and five wives? For some, bestiality is an alternative lifestyle. Do we allow a man to marry a sheep? At some point, we have to draw a line.
