Where is the Love?

Lots of talk this week (and for the past year or so) about "traditional" marriage. Conservatives and liberals alike are trying to set a standard for what is and what isn't marriage, i.e. domestic unions vs. traditional marriage, gay marriage bans, and the affirmation that marriage can only be a union between one man and one woman.

As the first in a series of informational graphics relating to marriage, its value to society, and how it has changed over time, we offer the following:

Based on the fluid nature of this sacred institution I have to ask, "Why would gay marriage lead to the destruction of the family, and ultimately the desctruction of society as a whole?"

Remember, half of the straight people out there talking about "the sanctity of marriage" have been divorced themselves. Where is the sanctity? And as for family values, how many of us have straight parents who have been divorced (40%), had children out of wedlock (15%), had extra-marital affairs (30%), or pre-marital sex (85%)?

Let's grow up people and accept the fact that straights didn't need the help of gays, lesbians, or trans-gendered people to destroy the sanctity of marriage. They did just fine tearing it apart all by themselves.

I've heard that gay marriages are statistically more likely to last than straight marriages. Family values is a crock.
