While I agree that traditional marriage needs to be defended from the current push for homosexual and polygamist unions, it should be noted that the divorce rate between heterosexual couples was hovering between fifty and eighty percent well before these other issues were introduced. And where was the outcry against that? I am glad someone is pointing out that if we want to secure traditional marriage, we have to hold everyone accountable. We can't point fingers […]
