California’s State Senate passed a bill legalizing same-sex marriages yesterday. Opposing state Senator Tom McClintock objected, saying that “Marriage is the institution by which we propagate our species and inculcate our young.”

Hmm. Actually, sex is how we propagate our species, and education is how we inculcate our young. Methinks maybe Sen. McClintock needs more of at least one of those; he seems a bit unclear on the concept.
