    The new argument against gay equality: Same-sex marriage kills [W:142]

    The new argument against gay equality: Same-sex marriage kills - The Washington Post

    But comes now Gene Schaerr, unsuccessful lawyer for Utah in that state’s case against same-sex marriages, to file an amicus brief with the Supreme Court on behalf of “100 scholars of marriage.”
    To wit: Legalizing same-sex marriage devalues marriage and causes fewer heterosexual couples to marry, which leads to a larger number of unmarried women, who have abortions at higher rates than married women. As a result, Schaerr wrote, “nearly 900,000 more children of the next generation would be aborted as a result of their mothers never marrying. This is equal to the entire population of the cities of Sacramento and Atlanta combined.”
    Myself, I think this argument is as crazy as an outhouse rat.
    Anyone wish to disagree?

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    That's whack.

    #1 He's assuming that gay couples won't be gay couples in the absence of marriage and thus, if gay marriage was outlawed then these gay people will suddenly become straight and procreate with those of the opposite sex.

    #2 He's assuming that with gay marriage, there would be more abortions due to more single women which is also bull**** because of #1 and the fact that he's ignoring the fact (goddamn repetitiveness!) that lesbians would marry and not get pregnant in the first place/will be inseminated but will NOT be single.

    In other words...

    SSM and its legalization will not increase abortions because gay couples will be gay couples with or without marriage (but with marriage they would be a lot happier and more productive as well as enjoy the same privileges/rights that heterosexual married couples get including tax deductions and the like), and thus, the number of single women (who apparently have higher abortion rates) would remain the same with or without SSM.

    Bigots will always find a way to justify their bigotry in public. They can't come out an just say "I'm a bigot" because that is looked down upon so they come up with all kinds of covers for their true intentions and ever time one of their covers is ripped down, they come up with a new one.

    This is nonsense just like every other argument against SSM from "what about the children" to "it'll hurt tradition". The fact is that, at this point, people who oppose SSM are bigoted against same-sex couples. It's simple. No matter how much they protest the label and whine about "tolerance", that's who and what they are no matter how much they try to hide it.

    Methinks it would be the most perfect question to ask any Republican candidate for President.
    If I was a journalist I would be in there like a dirty shirt.
    Mr. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx what is your opinion on this?

    where in the world did they get those stats?
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    Should we outlaw swinging? Water sports? Foot worship? BDSM?

    Anything. Perhaps reeducation camps? Conversion therapy, jail sentences, chemical castration, or a pink triangle worn on all clothing.
    Which would you object to?
