    Because they aren't stupid.

    Never mind the fact that there's no necessary relationship between 'the sanctity of the intisution of marriage' and 'the perpituity of a given marriage' -- indeed, the continuance of a marriage that breaks all of the normalities of marriage does more to defile the insitution than ending that marriage.

    Here's the answer: They're ****ing hypocrites.
    You think this only because you'd rater attack those that oppose same-sex marriage than actually think something through.

    Main Entry: sanc·ti·ty
    Pronunciation: \ˈsaŋ(k)-tə-tē\
    Function: noun
    Inflected Form(s): plural sanc·ti·ties
    Etymology: Middle English saunctite, from Anglo-French sainteté, from Latin sanctitat-, sanctitas, from sanctus sacred
    Date: 14th century

    1 : holiness of life and character : godliness
    2 a : the quality or state of being holy or sacred : inviolability b plural : sacred objects, obligations, or rights
    Main Entry: in·vi·o·la·ble
    Pronunciation: \(ˌ)in-ˈvī-ə-lə-bəl\
    Function: adjective
    Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French or Latin; Middle French, from Latin inviolabilis, from in- + violare to violate
    Date: 15th century

    1 : secure from violation or profanation <an inviolable law>
    2 : secure from assault or trespass : unassailable <inviolable borders>
    Sanctity = holy
    Inviolable = of such value that it must not be violated

    If marriage is holy and so inviolable, it should never be torn asunder for ANY reason, correct?

    No, I say it because it's a fact. Those who insist that we must "protect the sanctity of marriage" are hypocrites if they do not also insist that divorce must be outlawed. Anything less is religious hypocritical bull****.

    You apparently did not bother to actually read my response.

    Allow me to repeat myself:
    ...indeed, the continuance of a marriage that breaks all of the normalities of marriage does more to defile the institution than ending that marriage.

    No, I say it because it's a fact.
    Obviously not, in several regards.

    And you are obviously so homophobic you're willing to be a duplicitous and unashamed hypocrite.

    Good on you, pal!

    Thank you for proving my point better than I ever could hope to.

    if you want to use the word "sanctity", then there certainly is a relationship.

    This is just a copout, though.

    They're against gay marriage - and they feel they can use the sanctity of marriage as a good guise for it.

    It's not their *real* reason, though - they just don't want gays to marry, it's that simple. Except they know that's not a good enough of a reason - and so they must find other reasons that they feel are 'more legitimate'

    If you really thought this through, then you would realize that those who have pushed through an anti same sex marriage agenda have done considerably more harm to traditional marriage than simply allowing same sex marriage ever could have done.

    My justification for this argument...
