Sanctity exists whether you use the word or not. You can't sit there and say "sanctity does not exist" and expect to be treated as a smart feller.At its base, yes.
You forget. I'm an atheist. "Sanctity" is not part of the equation. Sanctity does not exist.
Respect, however, does exist. And you have no respect for the love that certain people show each other.
Respect exists, does it? Where's your respect for my views of the sanctity of marriage?
