She’s baaack     the Minnesota marriage twinkie. It takes a special kind of fundamentalism to be this illogical in under three minutes.

  1. I don’t know where these people are getting their information portraying a decline in the number of same-sex households.  According to Bloomberg Business Week:

    Sept. 28 (Bloomberg) — The number of same-sex
    households in the U.S. surged by about 80 percent during the past
    decade, a period that saw the introduction of legalized gay marriage at
    the state level. The U.S. Census Bureau yesterday said the number
    of same- sex households grew to 646,464 in 2010 from 358,390 in 2000
    .

  2. Having said that, the number of same-sex households as well as the statistical trend are irrelevant to the issue.
  3. What is more important is the 2 million children being raised by gays     many in committed relationships. Those kids would have more security and stability with married parents.
  4. Which poll should you trust; One funded by the Christian law firm Alliance Defense Fund or one from Gallup?
  5. That, too, is irrelevant. Civil rights, by their very nature, are not a popularity contest.
