More homosexual 'marriages' does not more marriages make

A family leader says although gay "marriages" may increase, Christians must realize that homosexual "marriage" is a false union. 

According to the California Department of Public Health, more than 30,000 homosexual couples married in July, up 15 percent from last year. More Californians were married following a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that paved the way for gay marriages in the state.

"Even if the numbers do increase, for Christians, the reality is this is not marriage," says Pater LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality

"It has nothing to do with our Judeo-Christian tradition," he adds, "so this is not marriage and we cannot pretend that this is marriage."

LaBarbera, Peter"Obviously the homosexual lobby wants to fluff up the numbers as big as they can to show that there are so many millions of people supposedly seeking same-sex 'marriages,' so called," LaBarbera tells OneNewsNow.

In 2008, almost 30,000 couples were married after gay marriages were allowed for a short window in the state.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against proponents of California's one man, one woman marriage law and said Proposition 8 proponents lacked legal standing to defend it.
