Family life the greatest good

"WHERE does the family start? It starts with a young man falling in love with a girl – no superior alternative has yet been found..." (Winston Churchill). Presently, in our topsy-turvy world, such remarks and those agreeing with them are denounced as homophobic.

Marriage and family life is the greatest good in society. A child has a right to the unconditional love and support of its natural parents. But in our topsy-turvy world, the emphasis is now on the 'right to have a child' rather than the 'rights of a child'.
