Are Same-Sex Couples Just Like You?
Canon & Culture ^ | May 23, 2014 | Glenn Stanton

Posted on 06/07/2014 2:03:05 AM PDT by AustralianConservative

“We are loving, committed and faithful couples just like anyone else.” If you’ve paid the slightest bit of attention to the same-sex marriage debate, you’ve heard this very statement in some iteration. It’s not true by some important measures though.

1. Same-sex male couples are dramatically more likely to be unfaithful than heterosexual couples.

2. Committed lesbian relationships are more likely to break up than both male-male and opposite-sex couples, by dramatic margins.

Those are two very important differences, unarguably judging the “we’re no different” dogma incorrect. What support is there for these stark differences?

First, it should be noted that the research is strong and numerous enough that a recent and very provocative Atlantic cover story on what straights could learn from gay marriage couldn’t ignore it. Liza Mundy, the article’s author, doesn’t appear to have a conservative bone in her body, yet she is fair and straight-up honest with the research on the nature of committed same-sex relationships.

Homosexuals think that same-sex marriage legitimizes them. In fact, it make them seem more weird.

let’s clear this up.

there is no such thing as “gay marriage” and never will be.

marriage by definition is a God-created and God-sanctioned covenant relationship exclusively between one man and one woman. period.

no other kind of ‘relationship’ qualifies as marriage.

Nope.

Neither of us has to strap anything on.

Lets see, same sex couples are essentially two people with serious mental health issues that live together, and like to pretend they are just like everyone else. What could go wrong?

No. Me and my mate contributed 4 to the next generation and so far 3 to the generation after that. More than any queer couple will contribute.

Same-Sex Couples have nothing in common with me.

Heterosexual couples have nothing in common with me.

I am an individual and will not be placed into some grouping by a liberal nor by a conservative.

This is the nation where our individuality is recognized and championed.

I will not engage in group-think.

It's a mental disease by any definition except for those clowns at the American Psychiatric Association. Somehow the APA got dragooned into "revising" their list of mental diseases so the rest of this cascading cultural derangement has resulted.

Homosexuals are severely damaged people and dead branches on their family trees.

They are sick; the fastest way to shut down anyone arguing differently is to ask them to describe what these deviants do to each other in detail. Even the most ardent normal supporters will admit behind closed doors that they are sickened...

My boss’ brother is a homosexual and “married” to his whatever. My boss refers to the “other” as her brother-in-law. I just want to say “no he isn’t”, but she is my boss. They live in Florida, which doesn’t recognize homo marriage anyway. Idiots.

The cover story on this morning's Indianapolis paper says the GOP in Indiana is split over a horrifyingly divisive and controversial platform plank:

At issue is a new platform provision that says, “We believe that strong families, based on marriage between a man and a woman, are the foundation of society.”

Foundation of a society? Not this one, clearly.

Oh but the government is looking into creating all gender freaks to solve this problem at the request of the top queer in the country. What could possibly go wrong?

what straights could learn from gay marriage

About as much as Eric Johnson or Joe Bonamassa could learn from a 13 year old air guitar player, I imagine.

I know a comparatively conservative, self-described "Christian" gay man who had had "scores" of sex partners, who did not consider himself "promiscuous" because he always knew their names.

Interesting how words get re-defined.

No. They are sex obsessed deviants who would reserve them selves to one person when HELL freezes.

In normal people sex is a facet of their lives. In the homosexual it is the very life itself, the defining factor.

Well that does stand to reason. Men and women ARE different from each other. So a relationship between a man and a woman is not the same as a relationship between two men. And a relationship between two women is not the same as either of the previous.

The polling is fascinating ; 50+% favor same sex marriage, only 7% consider sex outside of marriage acceptable. The next question asked of the general public has to be, “Is sex outside of a same sex marriage as morally reprehensible as sex outside of a heterosex marriage?” If not, how is it a marriage?

I think it mostly occurred when a bunch of homos in the early 70s gradually started to take over positions on the association's board of trustees until they had enough to hold sway.

Why wouldn’t these relationships be less likely to survive? They’re not real marriages anyway.

I wouldn’t know if you are or are not mentally disturbed and unstable. Never said you were. I simply pointed out that the various types of relationships were not identical, or “the same”.

The same thing has been occurring with the legal profession. Homosexual lawyers became homosexual judges and thanks to the idiocy/treason of Democrats, we have more homosexual judges in pivotal positions. Big surprise the Judge Walker found Proposition 8 unconstitutional - but of course, being a homosexual had nothing to do with his decision, right?
