Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Think about it..

This is a status message seen on Facebook by a family member who normally doesn’t utter political statements:

So let me get this straight…Kelsey Grammer can end a 15yr marriage by phone, Larry King is on divorce #9, Britney Spears had a 55hr marriage, Jesse James and Tiger Woods, while married, were having sex with everyone, 53% of Americans get divorced and 30-60% cheat on their spouses. Yet, same-sex marriage is going to destroy the institution of marriage? Really?

THat would be referring partially to some of the statements coming from New York State opponents of same-sex marriage, which was legalized yesterday.

Just look at Canada. Has the institution of marriage suffered because we allowed 10-15% of our population to legally marry each other since 2004/05? Hardly. The institution of marriage may be in peril, but same-sex marriage is the least of its worries.

    About 1%, actually, rising to ~2% if you count bisexuals (one assumes college life + puberty doesn’t count). Let’s say 5% to be crazy generous. It’s absolutely a humans right issue, they completely deserve to be married, but inflating the numbers is just silly.
