Gay-marriage debate perspectives
Change your focus
If the opponents of gay marriage — something that involves relatively few people — are really concerned about the sanctity of marriage, they might be well-advised to direct their attention to their many friends, relatives, neighbors and fellow workers who are living together without the benefit of marriage.
My generation had a more descriptive term for this: “shacking up.” The huge numbers of these unmarried couples are a far greater threat to the survival of marriage than a few gays who ask for equality.
The opponents of gay marriage should put their own house in order first.
