    I've researched it. It's quite apparent that you haven't. The author of the opinion piece you linked just changes the meaning of Hebrew words to suit his beliefs, ignores historical evidence, and argues against a strawman. It's off topic, so if you want to 'discuss' this further, start a new thread and I'll happily take apart his claims.

    I don't if gay marriage is legalized or not because I'm not gay.

    And the context is that of a biased website using a completely invalid approach to a poll. That would certainly make it irrelevant in gathering any useful information.

    No it's not. I've already proven you wrong with your black and white thinking. I am very religious AND support SSM. Read your quote in my signature, NP.

    Failure in the use of something does not automatically equate to the failure of the thing itself. If 50% of the people who buy a car try to use it as a boat, they will fail. That doesn't mean that cars are failures. The institution of marriage in and of itself is neither good nor bad, success or failure. It simply is. It's how people apply it in their lives and whom they enter into the institution with that will determine whether or not that particular incident of the institution succeeds of fails.

    Sanctity is a subjective term and not all people view marriage as a sacred institution. Besides we are not talking about such marriages, we are discussing legal marriages, which run across all religious and non-religious lines. We're not worried if something is sacred or not when it comes to law. The 50% divorce rate includes all atheists and agnostics as well as other religions. So the question is what is the breakdown of rates among all these various groups. I would additionally like to see what the difference in rates are between those simply claiming a faith and those who are devout in said faith. I'm willing to bet that those who are Christian in name only have a higher divorce rate than those who view marriage as sacred institution.

    How so? There are a couple of possibilities there and I want to know which you are referring to.

    Who would be forced to officiate them? Priests? Because if you're referring to religious officials that's not a proposal anywhere.
