I hope you do not want him to expand on his assertion and "explain" further. When people believe there is such a thing as "society" they are really talking about a group of like minded individuals who are perceived to have some kind of magical power and influence over all the rest of us who are not the privileged members of this group. It is his purpose to protect that group of pedestal sitters and their wants, needs and desires. It is also necessary that he convince you that your wants needs and desires are unimportant compared to the wants needs and desires of the "society" he pretends exists.<quoted text>
So, tell me....how has my being legally married to my wife have ANY affect on you or another's marriage? I know that NO one's marriage has ANY affect on mine, nor did marriages have an affect on me before I got married almost 6 years ago!!!
You can not defend yourself against this level of insanity. And you can not reason with anyone who believes that the wants, needs and desires of the power possessing group [his "society"] are more important than are your rights.
In other words, if those who self appoint themselves "leaders" and the voice of "society" believe gay marriage is bad,[and they just have to believe it, screw facts and evidence], then they feel perfectly justified claiming that you do not deserve your rights because they are not in harmony with the way "society" wants to have the world spin.
