Sorry but the link I provided went to the site. The site has multiple pages and in fact a link to the one you quoted from was in the article I linked.<quoted text>
No, you missed apparently this part of the passage from that website, on another page which I PROVIDED a link to.
"Outside of Europe, same-sex marriages are being recognized in Canada, Argentina, South Africa and several states of the USA (New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and the District of Columbia). In general, the situation is changeable and, in fact, changing, since other countries are discussing or preparing the legal recognition of same-sex marriages as well."
No, I don't. I know it won't.
But you provided the "tradition" argument against civil marriage for same-sex couples. Such an argument requires that one provide evidence of harm that is caused by a tradition or practice being changed.
There is no evidence, here or in Europe.
I made no such argument. I stated a fact that the reason for the reluctance is tradition. I made no argument that it was a legitimate argument simply that it is the primary reason people are fighting it. It is you that has tried to twist what I posted. Society s you like to keep refering to, likes tradition and dislikes change. In order to gain acceptance you need more than a decree from Government you need society to accept it.
Currently the states that have legalized gay marriage are a good example of the change in society and their views. Other states are looking toward those states and the people are gradually changing thier opinions. This is what will eventually lead to a full acceptance, not some law passed by a legislature pressured into making a decision.
