The Times of London quotes a woman who is asking – why can’t I get a civil union with my daughter so that I could give her the financial benefits that I want to give her? Albert Mohler discusses it in his Nov 28 podcast (scan up to minute 11). The woman asks some good questions:
I’m pro civil partnerships for gays — but why can’t I sign up to one with my daughter?… If I were gay, I could pop into a lesbian dive, pick up a cute little chickie, install her in my home and then, giddy with optimism and desire, trot her off to the register office a month later and make her my civil partner. Romance aside, by doing so I would be protecting the person I love most from the potential for financial disarray that, quite sensibly, is a frequently given reason for wanting to do it at all.
