Children need truth during early years
Ms. Upgren was so very right on one point (Letters, April 13). Children need truth through their formative years. The truth of family is they are the people who love and care for you. Same-sex parents are posing as parents. They are parents.
Wouldn’t it be discrimination against the children to deny the added security of marriage?
The lie is in stating anything other than a "traditional" family is not a valid family. The proper structure of family is a loving, nurturing environment in the home and community.
