    Is that the best you got?

    Same sex marriage does not "add" to the 50% divorce rate of heterosexual marriages because much of the same reasons that heterosexual marriages end at that rate also affect same sex marriage.

    As such, your statement is clearly disingenuous, and simply lacking any substance. I'm disappointed. Try again.

    Ahhh a coward....I should have seen that coming.

    Poor little Religious Zealot.....you don't mind screaming it to everyone here...but you don't like being pinned.

    I'm not "hijacking" anything, just trying to get you (who brought up Religion before I did) to give us the Religious basis for your position....

    Now, run along and cry to mommy.

    You mean how many times have pro-SSM on this forum insisted that gays are just like everyone else? Virtually every SSM thread. If they're like us, then since we have a 50% divorce rate, so will they. If you're saying that gays will not also have a 50% divorce rate, then you're saying that gays are different, and you need to illustrate those difference.

    I could go fishing for specific posts tonight if you wish.

    At least your answer is more honest than Jerry's. Of course, it demonstrates that this is an issue of sensiblities.

    no, i don't think there are divorce stats with any meaning available on ssm. you stated they would further the 50% divorce rate, a statement with no authority. however, even if they did.......so what? we don't deny hetero marriage because a couple might divorce, do we?

    I said "furthers", not "add". Notice how the words are spelled differently.

    Um...that doesn't change the fact that it is terrible reasoning. The factors that lead to a 50% divorce rate in heterosexual couples are the same as those that influence same sex couples. As such, you can't use divorce as a justification for denying same sex couples the right to marry.
