Same-sex couples do produce families

This is a response to the letter, "Same-sex marriages don't produce kids," (Nov. 16). Obviously, the letter writer doesn't know many gay couples. Some adopt children who may never know a happy home. Some become pregnant by other means and produce beautiful, healthy children, all contributing something wonderful to society. This is called a family. They all are up at 3 a.m. and doing what it takes to raise children.

Gay couples marry for love and family like any other couple. They are gay. They don't have a choice in that. So why deny them that human experience? The times are changing and so it's best to live and let live. The Bible teaches us not to judge.
