Here is a quick post that I would like all to consider. Let us say for argument's sake that gay marriage is defeated by popular vote in 2008. The opponents of gay marriage keep telling us that those who are already married can keep their marriages, the petition is designed only to prevent anyone in the future from getting married to the same sex. This is all in the name of protecting society, family values, the children, and the institution of marriage. Let's say for argument's sake that we agree with that position. How can we say on one hand that gay marriage is so dangerous that even the most benevolent of our society cannot handle the responsibility, but then say we are going to leave several thousand of these gay marriages around anyway, just because they came first? If all gay marriages are negatively impacting society, then do you really think it is appropriate to leave any of them around? Won't this priveledged few have the same negative effect people are so worried about?
Think about this and feel free to share your thoughts.
