Voting, single-parents and gay marriage!

GOP Rep. Bill Flores Links Baltimore Riots To Gay Marriage

Submitted by Brian Tashman on Wednesday, 4/29/2015 10:30 am

Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins hosted Rep. Bill Flores, R-Texas, to discuss the anti-marriage-equality rally outside of the Supreme Court that both had attended that morning.

During the interview, Flores bizarrely suggested that gay marriage will somehow lead to a breakdown of the family model and an increased number of single-parent-led households, contributing to poverty and the conditions which led to the Baltimore riots:

"Let’s talk about poverty, for instance. The single best indicator of whether or not a child is going to be in poverty or not is whether or not they were raised by a two-parent household or a single parent household, so the breakdown of the family has contributed to poverty. Look at what is going on in Baltimore today, you see the issues that are raised there. Healthy marriages are the ones between a man and a woman because they can have a healthy family and they can raise children in a way that’s best for their future, not only socially but psychologically, economically, from a health perspective. There is nothing like traditional marriage that does that for a child. Each of us have a mother and a father and there is no way to get around that."

1. But Baltimore has a lower-than-average poverty rate for a city its size, and lower inequality

This is something I think the right and the left both are forgetting. Baltimore is actually something of an economic success story for mid-size rust belt cities. They're doing a hell of a lot better than Youngstown or Milwaulkee or Toledo or...
