QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"Letting gays get married does not harm anyone else's marriage."

-Some guy interviewed on NPR (possibly paraphrased)

--

50% of heterosexual marriages break up. And yet some people think the real threat to the institution is group of gays so committed to the institution of marriage that they are willing to fight and sacrifice for their inclusion. They are the true enemy.

I'm sorry but this fails the 'gimme a break' test.

Though as I've said before, get the govt out of the marriage business and give everyone civil unions. Leave marriage to the churches, who can marry or not marry whomever they wish.

Considering the fact that government licensed marriages are already nothing more than de facto civil unions, the whole thing is a tempest in a teapot.
