The supreme court recently declined to rule of gay marriage and the media went crazy with headlines about the enormous victory for gay rights and gay people. Many observers of the court were stunned that the justices passed up reviewing lower-court decisions that overturned prohibitions on same-sex marriage in five states, delaying a decision that would answer the question for the nation.
With all of the clamour and protests from the gay community, the supreme court not ruling on decisions was more of a defeat than a victory, because there are five states that overturned gay marriage and the supreme court ruling let the rulings by the lower courts in those five states stand as overturned.
But there are a few good reasons for the religious right to embrace gay marriage. The first that stands out in my mind is simple arithmetic. By allowing gay marriage, Americans can quickly and decisively dispell the propaganda by the LGBT community about the actual number of homosexual people in America.
The New York Times said that as of June, 2013 only 82,500 gay couples in all of America had “tied the knot.”
For a quick comparison, more then 120,000 hetrosexual marriages occured in Las Vegas in 2013 alone. Again simple arithmetic shows that the number of marriages in one city in a single year dwarfs the total number of gay marriages in 3 years across all of the states that allow gay marriage. Its a given that Las Vegas is one of the more popular places to get married, but I used Vegas as an example. If that many “straight” couples were married in one city, How many marriages occurred last year across America?
The media and the gay community have once again sold Americans a line of crap with gay marriage. They claim that 10% of Americans are gay or bi-sexual. In a country of 325 million (and 50 million illegal immigrants) there is no POSSIBLE way that only 165,000 of of the alleged 10% or 35 million gay people in America decided to get married.
Then there is the added benefit of gay divorce, which is the real reason why the ACLU and the American Bar Association are pushing for gay marriage in the first place. Lets face it. To Lawyers, its a whole new arena for litigation. Can you imagine all that fighting and bickering between two gay people that will keep the divorce in the courts for years? All the lawyer fees as the gay couple fights over custody of the cat and the goldfish? When its all said and done, the only people that will benefit from gay marriage are lawyers and real estate agents who will make billions dividing and selling off all the property to pay for the gay marriage in the first place.
Good stuff indeed. I am always behind equality in America. If I have to give up half of all that I own because I divorce, why shouldn’t gay people have to do the same? JD
