    In reference to adoption agencies that contract with and receive permits from the State of Michigan, a Michigan federal district court said: "to turn away same-sex couples lacks a rational basis" (according to the cited article). Consider the ignorance of this statement. It contradicts the psychology of the family. It denies the importance to a child of being raised by a natural man and his natural "opposite sex" united in matrimony. It not only changes the definition of marriage, but of family.
