Pro-family attorneys arguing for traditional marriage before lesbian judge

The Thomas More Society is arguing in court in Illinois that marriage should be between one man and one woman because it creates an ideal environment for children.

Thomas More Vice President Peter Breen explains that Judge Sophia Hall dismissed three of five claims. Two more remaining are for “equal protection” and “due process.”

“But really when you look at the law, it tracks the public policy debate," says Breen. "And the real issue is whether the government has a right to define marriage as between one man and one woman, for the sake of children, to try to provide moms and dads for as many kids as possible."

Left-wing website Think Progress reported in 2012 that Judge Hall is a lesbian and a charter member of a homosexual-rights group. Conservatives argued, apparently unsuccessfully, for her to recuse herself.

Homosexual activists claim it's a matter of equality but Breen says that's not what the argument over marriage is about.

Breen, Peter (Thomas More Society)“Because all the love in the world can't turn a man into a mother or a woman into a father,” Breen tells OneNewsNow. “And the idea of marriage, from a civil government perspective, is to provide as many moms and dads for kids as we can.”

Whichever side wins the day in Cook County Court, the case will be appealed through the process to the Illinois Supreme Court.

Homosexuals failed to gain approval in the last session of the legislature and are now using the courts to accomplish their goals.
