"Others point out that the law has not managed to stop any mass shootings this year." How can something like this be proved. We will never know. As for mass shootings in New York State, I am not aware of any that have taken place in the last year. I think the 35,000 figure is too little. There are many more people who should not have access to guns.

Your point being? Civil marriage is a civil contract. I believe when men lived in caves a wife was picked by clubbing here and dragging her to a cave.

Polygamy was around long before gay marriage was even on the radar. Polygamy was practiced by various religious groups. "Traditional marriage started the slippery slope to polygamy. The only valid argument for polygamy is a religious freedom argument. We are all potential polygamists. There is no discrimination in saying all can only have one.

As a Christian (Catholic) who believes in civil marriage equality I find the paranoid argument that equality is about insulting or outlawing Christianity to be lame. Marriage equality has been law for 10 years now in Massachusetts. The sky has not fallen there. Support for equality has grown tremendously in the last 10 years because people see the sky has not fallen. The argument that some heterosexuals will not marry or will not take care of their children because the gay couple next door that has been together for 20 years now has state recognition of their relationship carries no weight. Olson, as quoted by Charen, had some great answers. Marriage equality does not change marriage. It changes societal view of homosexuals from one of deranged outcasts to one of people just like everyone else. This is the biggest problem for the anti-equality crowd. Look at the proposals be discussed by Catholic Bishops these days. They are shocking. I am so proud to be a Catholic.

Have you seen what the Catholic Bishops are proposing as far as treatment of gay Catholics. The Bishops are certainly not saying gay people are out to destroy the Church.

Thousands of gay couples have married in the US and we find less than 10 cases of proprietress who have had legal problems because they chose to discriminate against such couples. Most of the10 cases did not involve any actual marriage what're the odds that one of the 10 businesses would be Muslim owned.
