I have said for a long time that the issue in same sex marriage is NOT equality -- GLBT folks wanting to marry with the same definition of marriage as has been operative for all of history. It is rather the desire to remake marriage itself and those who are pushing for same sex marriage are intent upon reshaping nearly everything that has to do with marriage (from fidelity to the number of partners).
Look at the figures from this survey. From porn to premarital sex and from extra-marital sex to abortion, you can see that there is a dramatic difference between those opposing and those in favor of same sex marriage. It only escalates as you move right along the columns.
Read here for the full report. Churchgoers who oppose same-sex marriage sense that they are out of step
with the rest of the nation about sex and relationships.
Let me make my point again, the GLBT push for the right to be married is not a desire to be assumed into the definition of marriage that has been normative for all of time but a conscious effort to reshape and redefine marriage for EVERYONE who gets married. The values to which this group adheres are not compatible with the old model of marriage and the intent here is to change marriage for everyone who gets married. It may not happen overnight but it will happen. . .
