You make excellent points, something social conservatives are more than aware of. But as my FRiend DJ puts it, "Why add more fuel to the fire of a house that is already burning down?"
Former Boston Herald columnist Don Feder writes in his article entitled "A Sledgehammer instead of a Gavel" (regarding the CA Supreme Court overturning a traditional marriage referendum):
The family is society's fundamental, irreplaceable unit. It's the incubator of character -- where children are taught manners, economy, loyalty, faith and love. Anyone with half a brain (which automatically excludes most of the judiciary) wouldn't mess with an institution on whose future the survival of humanity depends.
But the 4-to-3 majority proclaimed that whether or not the family is radically remade so homosexuals will feel better about themselves, and the elite can congratulate itself on its tolerance, matters little to the state of California.
For the life of them, the justices can't imagine why homosexual liaisons should not be placed on an equal footing with families who are doing society's indispensable work of procreation and child-rearing. After the courts delivered a series of body-blows to marriage over the past four decades -- with no-fault divorce, abortion, the de facto legalization of pornography, and legitimizing cohabitation -- the justices thought: Oh, what the h_ll, what harm can there possibly be in opening the honorable estate to members of the North American Man/Boy Love Association and Dykes on Bikes?

While I usually don't speak for my fellow FReepers, I'm certain that they would be very appreciative of you if you fought the other battles in this ongoing culture war (cohabitation, adultery, pornography, alcoholism, drug abuse, etc. etc.), while we concentrate on a movement whose "culture" involves peeping through public restroom "glory holes".

Working together, we can all win the culture war.
It is fairly obvious the battle you assign me has already been lost. That ship has sailed.
Thanks a lot!
Believe it or not, I’m on your side against the homosexual agenda. I just get tired of people using totally one-sided biblical citations to justify their opposition.
Most of them apparently are unable to comprehend that such justifications are the worst possible ammunition to use. It plays right into the hands of those who claim all opposed to the homosexual radical agenda are “the American Taliban.”
