Somehow this reminded me of The Simpson's Helen Lovejoy:



I think this is the crux of the marriage equality debate. Gay people are living their lives and forming families whether groups like Focus on the Family like it or not. Given that many of these families have children, the question becomes one of priorities for FotF and others. Do they care more about winning the marriage fight or protecting all children in all families?
