    No rights are being infringed. Your wishes aren't being honored is all.

    They should be able to get married. We have more important things to bicker about.

    *crickets*

    chirp chirp.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    After hundreds of post it all boils down to this...?

    As aggressive as so many posts have been on both sides of the argument...it could have all been averted by asking that simple question..."what social damage or impacts would be imposed gay marriage."

    It just doesn't get any simpler than that.

    I figured we'd be here for the next week, 24/7 debating a Lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng list of negative impacts on society.

    Thanks all...

    If you allow gay marriage, then a certain percentages of those marriages (I would hamper to guess the same base amount as we have now), will end in divorce. The increase in divorce cases will put strain on the court systems as well as encourage more divorce lawyers to come about. The increase in lawyers will negatively impact our society by creating more lawyers which we are apparently not allowed to shoot.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    There's no Constitutional right to do that.
