I guess we'll just have to disagree about the marriage thing. I believe in marriage. I think it's great. I think it's great for kids. It's just that lately it's been reduced to a mere shadow of itself. So I don't see what the reverence for it is all about. I think that two people who want to make that kind of commitment should be able to do so, without anyone's consent beyond their own and some magistrate. People will live up to the precepts and promises of marriage only if they want to. Making it only for heterosexuals doesn't change anything and I think it's a waste of time to make it an issue.
In any case, I really only mentioned your comment on Rush because there are plenty of liberals around to trash Rush and piling on or appeasing by you is probably not even necessary
As far as Rush goes, I don't think I was trashing him. I was trying to be funny. Guess not.
and badhatharry ....do you know where it originally came from?
