But even many supporters of same-sex marriage like me ... Just riding the tide, Mr. Barone? Is your support all about compassion, equality, and all the other blather that is spewed to evade the true nature of the issue? Are you God-fearing, truly God-fearing? The institution of marriage was designed by God for man. To provide social stability to a free-willed beast. It doesn't take much to extend your support to include all kinds of marriages. These are the flood gates you are helping to open. Sad to see someone with the intellectual experience you have honed to come up so sharply wrong on such a simple plan, wrought by God. That is the trouble with the elite, they believe they know what's best as they ride one fad after another.
