Maybe in the grand scheme of everything, the gay marriage issue should have been revisited. In retrospect, so much time and policy has been directed at 2% of the population, of which, only a small percentage will ever “marry”. Given that the amount of broken families in this country and the problems of poverty and crime that result, the effort to address gay marriage seems well out of proportion to the real problem in this country.
“the effort to address gay marriage seems well out of proportion to the real problem in this country.”
Is the effort intended to curtail or promote the degredation of the family?
See the real reasons why pervs want “marriage”, I just posted above. In their own words.
It isn't about gay "marriage" so much as it is about getting "benefits" (i.e. profiting from redistribution of wealth) and breaking down millennia old social structures.
Now that marriage is being redefined legally to mean anything, while people who can obtain a legal "marriage" document can receive all kinds of benefits because of that word "marriage", expect a lot of people to suddenly be discovering the joys of marriage. They don't have to be sexually involved--marriage could be between roommates who have no desire to form lasting relationships with members of the opposite sex, but who want all the benefits the law offers to actual married couples. These "married" roommates, while enjoying the financial benefits of marriage, would still be living single lifestyles and dating and so forth. Another use of "marriage" would be to evade inheritance taxes. Perhaps a businessman has no children to leave his estate to, but he doesn't want the inheritance tax levied on it. So he "marries" his business partner in order to leave his holdings to him.
And so forth. The one thing that legalizing gay "marriage" is almost certainly *not* about is love or relationships. It's all about societal destruction and wealth redistribution.
