"Traditional Marriage" Still Going Strong In Canada Despite Years of Legalized Gay Marriage
"In no instance have . . . the churches been guardians of the liberties of the people."
-- James Madison
As all the Right-Wing Christian Conservative Blow-Hard (RWCCBH) homophobes throughout America continue to blather on about how gay marriage is going to destroy traditional marriage, I just keep scratching my head, struggling with all my might to understand just what the $&#% they're talking about.
The fact is here in Canada same-sex marriage has been legal nationwide since 2005 and not one traditional marriage that I know of has ever been threatened or damaged in any way whatsoever. That's four years and millions of marriages without even one - not one - being threatened in the slightest.
And you better believe that if one ever was it'd be all over the news: "Yes, yes, that's right, Your Honor, we were happily married for 20 long years, but then this gay marriage bill passed and we saw gays getting hitched and it made our marriage seem so meaningless and empty. Obviously we had no other option but divorce."
I know my own marriage is still going strong, despite this seemingly imminent threat.
I'm not really sure how other people getting married - whether they be straight, gay, bi or even interspecies - is supposed to threaten my marriage, but I'm guessing that, when it comes to the RWCCBH homophobes, it probably has something to do with a secret desire to be free of their present marital situations (a la Larry Craig and Ted Haggard).
