For U.S. Catholic Bishops the Perfect is the Enemy of the Good

"The optimal environment for the raising of children is a family structure in which both a mother and a father are present and bonded together."
Brief of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in 
Obergefell v. Hodges 

Therefore couples who don't fit that mold should not be allowed the same legal rights, nor their bonds confirmed by government sanction....Classic non-sequitur.  The perfect is the enemy of the good.  
Fortunately many other denominations no longer follow that illogic, as William Eskridge - the intellectual father of the movement points out in this pre-argument Times Op-Ed.
