Its time to stop discussing theory and look to the evidence. There is an article at the American Standard that is way to long to post, but it discusses the devastating impact that gay marriage has had where it has been adopted. The theories are all very good, but this is what really happens.. (link below)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From the article......AMERICANS take it for granted that, despite its recent troubles, marriage will always exist. This is a mistake. Marriage is disappearing in Scandinavia, and the forces undermining it there are active throughout the West. Perhaps the most disturbing sign for the future is the collapse of the Scandinavian tendency to marry after the second child. At the start of the nineties, 60 percent of unmarried Norwegian parents who lived together had only one child. By 2001, 56 percent of unmarried, cohabiting parents in Norway had two or more children. This suggests that someday, Scandinavian parents might simply stop getting married altogether, no matter how many children they have.

How many times does it have to be said??? Correlation IS NOT causation.

The decline of marriage in Scandinavia most likely has very little to do with homosexual marriage since that's a relatively recent phenomenon, and most likely to do with an overly generous and very entrenched welfare system that has made the economic need for marriage nearly obsolete.

Try some critical analysis sometime. It'll do you good.
