I dont usually quote my own posts, but I thought about this some more.

Since some gay couples have already been married in this country, has that permanently resulted in the destruction of the sanctity of marriage?

If its not permanent, does having a reglious right politician putting out a bill and people voting that the marriages were illegal put the sanctity back? or just some of it? Whats the cut off point?

If gay couples getting married in other states or countries is permitted, how much sanctity does that damage? Is it distance based, numerically based, or is the relative 'flamboyancy' of the couple considered?

If a thousand gay couples get married on the same day, is that worse than a thousand getting married in a thousand successive days? Does it wear off after a while? Is there an expiration date on the sanctity reduction?

Wow, the sheer range of questions boggles my mind...

Do you think YOU might be guilty of the same thing?

I guess the difference is - I try hard NOT to be.

How about yourself?

as you are indifferent, precisely how does your dropping out of our battle hurt us? and if there was any integrity to your indifference, why even bother to announce it? because if you were big enough of a man, without saying a word, you'd think we'd have noticed withdrawal.
