As stated in our World Family Declaration,
We… reaffirm the truth enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was written in 1948, a time when African Americans couldn’t sit at the lunch counter, they rode in the back of the bus and had to drink from separate drinking fountains. An era that was busting wide open with Human rights. Giving birth to the McCarthy era and other forms of oppression and injustice towards citizens. Yes, we miss the good old days. “The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.” Hence the family exists prior to the state and possesses inherent dignity and rights which states are morally bound to respect and protect
However, we completely ignore the parts of the Declaration that are in conflict to our own bigoted views and ideology. This allows us to cherry pick the parts we exploit while causally ignoring the rest.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.

(3) The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.
It doesn’t say Men and Women must marry the opposite sex, it says Men and Women. It says intending spouses, not intending opposite sex spouses. Therefore, the fact that the declaration actually supports marriage equality is the big one that we
We declare that the family, a universal community based on the marital union of a man and a woman, is the bedrock of society, the strength of our nations, and the hope of humanity. As the ultimate foundation of every civilization known to history, the family is the proven bulwark of liberty and the key to development, prosperity, and peace. But only families as we define them. No other type of family or family structure is acceptable and we shall continue to hate, disparage and defame those who fall outside of our narrow, provincial and bigoted definition of a “natural family”.
The family is also the fountain and cradle of new life, the natural refuge for children, and the first and foremost school to teach the values necessary for the well-being of children and society. The family truly is our link to the past and bridge to the future. But again only those families that we approve of.
We further believe that
The natural family is the fundamental social unit, inscribed in human nature, and centered around the voluntary union of a man and a woman in a lifelong covenant of marriage, for the purposes of:
