You know if the divorce rate wasn't, what, 60% or so for straight people I'd say you could argue against gay marriage.

That makes no sense whatsoever from a logical debate statement.

Did you catch my question below? Why isn't the human body speifically designed to use the Exit as an Entrance as well? It can be done, but to a great detriment later in life. Has Evolution failed being gay?

Please cite for us then the statistics of how many gay relationships are monogamousl; how many stay partners for life, etc. If I didn't think you were such an imbecile, I might give a rats @zz what you think.

From your link:

"KEY FINDING: The American divorce rate today is nearly twice that of 1960, but has declined since hitting its highest point in our history in the early 1980s. For the average couple marrying for the first time in recent years, the lifetime probability of divorce or separation now falls between 40 and 50 percent."

And what we see is that the number of divorces per 1,000 married women age 15 and older has gone steadily down since 1980. (Source.)

Looking at an even shorter time frame, of 10 years post-marriage, also shows the divorce rate dropping. Here's a comparison of women's divorce rates 10 years post-marriage by their educational level:

Ten-Year Divorce Rates for Three Generations of Women

1970s: 23 percent 26 percent
1980s: 20 percent 25 percent
1990s: 16 percent 19 percent

You said 60%. That article, and many others disprove you. I only posted 2.

Once the homos get going it will be a lot higher than that

With the conclave to elect the next pope set for Tuesday, the College of Cardinals has been meeting all week to discuss the priorities of the church and the qualities its new pope must possess. Further, the College of Cardinals must also consider the attitudes of the Catholic people when electing the next pope.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Friday indicates that while 52% of Catholics said the church is moving in the right direction, 52% of those polled also said the church is out of touch with the views of Catholics in America.
