NOW I get why we shouldn't allow gay marriage.

Doesn't help the anti-SSM argument to me.

*Smacks forehead*

Um...okay...

The last line in particular is what really gets me. Yeah, how DARE anyone enter into a marriage based solely on a loving commitment! That's...bad! Or something.

Errrrrr, isn't the whole point of the marriage based on a loving commitment(be it between man/woman or ssm), or am I being an incredibly stupid agnostic idiot here?

I like the implication that straight couples = embodiment of all that is good but gay couples = counterfeit money

Couldnt you sub in divorce for ssm and not change anything in her argument? Why arent straight married couples throwing a fit at divorce!! Don't we hear "til death do us part?"

How does she feel about someone like Newt? Being married three or four times kind of devalues the sanctity of marriage

Yes, I can think of several examples where a Republican has had someone else "enter their marriage." Democrats too, to be fair, but still...

Crappy acting. Even more crappier message.

Why is being against gay marriage considered being about values? What sort of values? Aren't love and equality values?
