"But actually, it would harm the institution just as the left's adoption of "No Fault" divorce has done."

The institution of marriage is terminally ill and not long for this world. You're trying to close the barn door after the horses escaped. I'm not trying to save a dead institution. I'm trying to fight the acceptance and legal sanction of this perversion.

We're missing the boat here. Homosexuals don't really care about marriage. The level of promiscuity is incredible among them and their marriages would be an ugly farce. What they're trying to do is get official government approval of their "lifestyle".

I agree. However, I believe that they are also acting in concert with those who want to see all of our moral and legal traditions, marriage included, destroyed. While this may simply be "collateral damage" so far as the Homosexual Agenda is concerned, such tactics are also at the heart of the Left and their agenda.

I find it essential for me to oppose both of their agendas.

I totally agree with that. I think the most logical way to ensure that marriage remains sacred and protected is to have an institution with morals safeguard it. Government has no morals - it is a tool for the most dispicable elements in our society (politicians) and gleans its power by appealing to the lowest common denominator (majority of voters).

I agree with you. Many heteros screaming about how harmful to hetero marriage the idea of homo marriage is conveniently forget that -- without homo marriage -- heteros have managed to make give marriage a 50%+ divorce rate.

Not to mention the millions of Britney Spears / Vegas-type debacles that have left millions of children behind in their wakes of devastation. But that's OK because it's hetero?
