Reduce the number of divorces, yes, outlaw it no. If it were outlawed, who would legally marry?<quoted text>
Look, if the right wing was SERIOUS about protecting marriage, they would be working to outlaw divorce.
The kicker here is gays aren't excluded. The bottom line is how marriage is legally defined. Same sex marriage is a contradiction in terms. How can there be marriage if you exclude one sex? In essence what is being asked is to legally recognize three institutions, so to speak. One, conjugal marriage of husband and wife. One gay marriage of two men, and one lesbian marriage of two women. SSM is an attempt to graft onto the the existing institution two seperate relationships with out any opposite sex language, dynamics, sexual aspect/union, culture, traditions, etc. Seriously XBox, is there a deep seated SSM culture male or female? Why does the nice lesbian couple down the street appear in their wedding photos in a tuxedo and a wedding dress? Is there some subconscious heterosexual yearning there? Do gay men who marry wear wedding dresses?They are NOT, because 'protecting marriage' is NOT their goal. Excluding gays is their goal.
