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.
