Doug Mainwaring is a man that you’ve probably never seen before and probably never will see again. He’s gay, but he’s also against gay marriage. Not only is he against gay marriage, he says that children need a mother and father, and he’s willing to speak out on it.
“For a long time I thought, if I could just find the right partner, we could raise my kids together, but it became increasingly apparent to me, even if I found somebody else exactly like me, who loved my kids as much as I do, there would still be a gaping hole in their lives because they need a mom,” Mainwaring, co-founder of National Capital Tea Party Patriots, said to the Christian Post.
Mainwaring is now living with his ex-wife as a co-parent so they can raise his sons as a traditional family. This opinion might not be a popular one as the world has really started to push an all-gay agenda, but it seems to be one that has been thought out and might be good for helping a child cope with the rest of society.
“I don’t want to see children being engineered for same-sex couples where there is either a mom missing or a dad missing,” Mainwaring explained. “Somebody needs to stand up for the rights and needs of children in an age when the selfishness of adults seems to be trumping those rights.”
When someone asked Mainwaring how he could be a gay conservative, he replied by asking, “You’re an adult, you have children. How could you be a liberal?”
This led to the audience erupting in applause in response to his remarks. What do you think? Is it possible for a gay man to believe that children are better off with a mother and a father, or would he automatically be labeled as a sell-out?
