Found this on my Facebook feed this morning:
Effective, but inaccurate-- no one who is serious about "defending the sanctity of marriage" considers the first two examples defensible. They're examples of a trend we oppose and which has done great damage to marriage and to families. So is the third one.
Kind of a straw man argument.
How do you define "marriage"? What do you say marriage is?

How do you define "marriage"? What do you say marriage is? · Nov 11 at 7:00am
I think marriage is between a man and a woman. It bothers me that a topic where both sides argue with such passion can go nowhere- when each party is using a different dictionary, it's tricky.
I do however support civil unions.
Leaving out the gay left, there are gays like me and my partner who wonder why same-sex marriage is singled out for so much attention given sky-high illegitimacy rates and countless other social issues.
I support same-sex marriage although not without reservations. The best objection to SS marriage is simply that we don't know what effects, if any, will appear down the road. Given that, civil unions are a perfectly acceptable compromise.
