Bishop's Flawed Reasoning

Until the Catholic church requires married couples to have kids, this argument does not hold up. Will they ban infertile couples from marrying? Force the divorce of couples if one can't or does not want to have kids?

There is more than enough procreation going on, what is need is more loving families, regardless of composition.

Richard Malone, the Bishop of Portland, Maine, has written a letter to Maine Catholics in response to a Portland news conference where leaders in several other Christian faiths professed support for same-sex marriage...
“To redefine marriage to include same-sex couples is to strip marriage of an essential component, namely the ability and obligation to procreate. To strip marriage of this essential component is to render marriage meaningless and open it up to endless revision and redefinition.”
