"The US Senate's failure to pass the Marriage Protection Amendment this week is gutless and appalling."So here is my question, which several people have asked me recently and I think deserves an answer - if the ban on same sex marriages is to promote the sanctity of marriage, why are we not passing congressional ammendments making divorce illegal.
RealClearPolitics - Articles - Conservatives Are Losing on Gay Rights:"After the Senate's rejection of the Marriage Protection Amendment Wednesday, supporters tried to portray it as nothing more than a temporary setback. "We are making progress," announced Kansas Republican Sam Brownback, noting that since the last vote two years ago, 14 states have approved bans on same-sex marriage."
I would say that the fact that 50% of American weddings (Christian and non-Christian) does more to damage the sanctity of marriage than letting some dude marry another dude. I don't agree with their actions, but what good will a constitutional ammendment really do?
I guess if it's passed, tomorrow we won't have to worry about sodomy any more. People will just give it up and change their ways... just like they've done with illegal drugs, alcohol during prohibition, abortion and every other time we've tried to legislate morality.
