“If each gay couple took a vow of fidelity and kept it sacred, they would soon realize what anyone with a basic 10th grade sexual education already knows: It takes a man and a woman to produce a baby. It is a physiological impossibility for a man and a man, or a woman and a woman, to procreate.
“Thus I suspect if married gay couples honored their vows, within two to three generations we would not have any more gay babies being born. Given most gay people say they didn’t choose to be gay but were born gay, it would eliminate innocent people being born into a world that homosexuals deem so hostile toward them. It would settle once and for all the argument that homosexuality is genetic and not a choice. Nature, not nurture. If there is no procreation, there is no passing of genes and, thus, the species does not survive.”
— Craig R. Smith in a column on the religious-right site WorldNetDaily. In addition to his social conservatism, Smith is the author of a book that claims oil is actually a renewable resource that the earth creates and spins to the surface via centrifugal force.
