Is Heterosexual Marriage Too Demanding?

"It is biologically impossible that same-sex marriages can reproduce children, defying the biblical injunction to multiply and populate the earth. Except that they can, by biological engineering or cloning, like the way Dolly the Sheep was cloned. However, cloning seems some years off in the future, as it faces ethical and moral hurdles. However, it is common for lesbians and homosexuals to adopt children legally or to pay surrogate mothers in poor parts of the world to get pregnant by their semen or seed, through in-vitro fertilization or artificial insemination.

"When the surrogate baby is born, the surrogate mother is paid and the child is taken away by the bisexual couple. Such practice has a lot of social, psychological, legal and emotional complications. We may pose the question, why are men getting married to other men, or women marrying their kind? Is heterosexual marriage too demanding?"

-- Ghanaian writer Kwesi Atta Sakyi in a piece published on ghanaweb.com, one of the African country's largest websites. The article, "Are Gay Rights Right in Ghana?" is chockfull of misinformation, but for a country with a vicious record on LGBT rights, it's obvious the author tried to reason out his thoughts on the subject. He didn't quite get there, but he tried.
