Thank you for the show today. Unlike Blankenhorn -- and this is likely generational -- I am a practicing and ordained Christian clergywoman and a professor, and have been pro-gay marriage for a very long time. It was good to hear the conversation and the civility of the dialogue.

However, I would like someone to let Mr. Blankenhorn know that, for many straight married couples, our inability to have children also ensures that any child brought into OUR families will not be the biological child of either parent, and that the biological mother and father will, largely, be absent. For those of use who choose domestic open adoption, this will likely be less of the case. But for the rest of us adoptive parents, I would ask him to be careful with that statement less, as he works this through, he invalidates heterosexual married adoptive parents also.
