Who will think of the children?

NOTE: I never finished writing this, probably due to existential ennui. But here it is. Gah.

So, somewhat regrettably, I got a paper from a student about why TEH GHEY MARRIAGE is an abomination before God and whatnot. In spite of the fact that I specified that they should NOT write about something where there main argument boiled down to unfalsifiable "faith." It's pretty much boilerplate, but this bit stood out to me:

Not only is gay marriage going to confuse children about the average family life, but also confusion in their religious beliefs. The Bible states marriage to be a union between a man and a woman. Children with gay parents may not know what to believe, their parents or what The Bible says.

The whole "children with mixed-race gay parents will be left out of their peer group" is hardly a new argument--but I find that last sentence interesting. The Bible, lest we forget, is an extremely long--and frequently very, very boring--book. There are--what?--three or four very short passages therein that could be interpreted to mean that teh ghey is teh badd.
