Lets see........
For thousands of years Marriage has always been between a Man and a Woman for the purpose of uniting in marriage and for the purpose of family and children. It is the foundation of our society. It is what it is.
Rose's Law: A moron without a real argument screams, "But what about the children!?"
People marry of all kinds of reasons, children are just one of them.
And legalizing gay marriage won't stop men and women from getting married and having children.

Marriage is still here.

This is a political game that gays are playing to gain acceptance nothing more nothing less. You will see tremendously bad social changes from the destruction of Marriage and it will not be pretty.
Another "plague of locust" argument.
How does a "plague of locust" argument differ from a slippery slope argument.
1. Quality. The type of consequences the arguer says will happen. A slippery slope's consequences are of the same type. "If you allow gay marriage, the next thing you know people will be getting married to their toasters.". A plague of locust argument says the the consequences of a different type.. "You will see tremendously bad social changes from the destruction of Marriage and it will not be pretty."
2. Quantity, the plague of locust consequences are dire, and often vague.
"tremendously bad social changes".

Homosexuals are required to sit on the back of the Bus?
We fixed most of the inequalities in the law the lgbt people used to face over your objections. Just a couple more fixes to go.

And as a result, homophobic bigots now don't have to sit in the back of the bus...they have to keep their bigotries to themselves if they want a place in a corporation or in higher education or in the entertainment industry or in any other aspect of educated society.

If you have ever had any run in's with the law you would know that cops treat people who don't rob banks about the same as those who do rob banks.
When robots take over many government jobs and you go to the clerks office to get a marriage license the robot should not be programed to ask you what sex you are, or any other questions that don't matter. There also should be room for more than one name as spouse. Just a thought.
I was giving abstract examples.
And I think everybody should be give the same marriage application.
(I'm not arguing for nor against multiple spouses.)

Question: How does gay marriage destroy straight marriage?
SevenTee: For thousands of years Marriage has always been between a Man and a Woman for the purpose of uniting in marriage and for the purpose of family and children. It is the foundation of our society. It is what it is.
ALAN: Non-resposive, irrelevant and doesn't answer the question.
Seven Pee: Suddenly an unelected activist liberal Judge rewrites thousands of years of history and law and you want to argue that is not destroying Marriage?
ALAN: Irrelevant. Again you have not answered the question.
SevenPee: Homosexuals are not normal people who should get married as if they were normal people. That confuses people into thinking that it is an accepted way of life and should be celebrated as such. It is not acceptable and it is not normal, it is an abomination and a perversion of the natural order.
ALAN: Irrelevant, non-responsive, question still not answered.
SevenPee: This is a political game that gays are playing to gain acceptance nothing more nothing less. You will see tremendously bad social changes from the destruction of Marriage and it will not be pretty.
ALAN: Irrelevant, non-responsive, question still not answered.
The only logical conclusion is that gay marriage does not harm or affect straight marriage in any way. You must believe that everyone else in here is as stupid as you are what from presenting that irrelevant and non-responsive dog and pony show.
Slam dunk.

No longer will they announce "Man and Wife", now it's only "Married People" I now pronounce you "married people". I gues that will take the thrill away for a normal heterosexual newly couple who looked forward to hear man and wife. THANK YOU odd people for your persistance!
Even if that were true, BFD, but who are "they"?
And a couple can word their ceremonies how they like.

Actually, I've heard some people complain about "Man and Wife" because they say it treats men and women differently. Those people say it should be "Husband and Wife".
But, again, you can put what you like in your ceremony.

No need. You and I both know it was. No one else matters. No one else cares.

Unless of course you're going to insist it was some other guy in Moline, Illinois who knows me exactly as you do and who has the same poor spelling and grammar.

Who cares? Just you and me sweetheart. And we both know the truth. You're a homophobe. And a dumbass troll loser.

The fact of the matter is that you are advancing a nonsensical argument with no basis in reality.
You're not based in reality....but in the rainbow world.

How does abolishing the sole legal definition of marriage as a union of one man and one woman as husband and wife help marriage, society, or the state?

sorry, Petey, that wasn't the sole definition.

and it will help all those by keeping this social construct relevant to the society that constructs it.
