Can someone please educate me on the detriments of same sex marriage?

I think any of us that have had a friend unable to visit his loved one in the hospital because certain policies apply only to immediate family can understand the benefits of marriage.
You know, other than telling people they're full parts of our society.

I do appreciate the input -- that's a good point you brought up and I never really thought of it until now.

Did anyone in this thread ever say anything against same sex marriage?

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I detect condescending sarcasm in your post. Your knee-jerk emotional responses are getting old.

Do you accept the challenge of reading, at least trying to understand, and replying with a respectful response?

There's no reason to be respectful to an anti-gay-marriage argument. None of them are based in reason, instead they're based in hypocritical emotion that's extremely easy to poke holes in. You can only have people tell you it's evil, or it somehow damages the sanctity of marriage in ways divorce doesn't, or that it's a religious thing even though marriages are legal entities performed by justices of the peace and churches are free to not perform any marriage they don't want to do, etc.

It's not like this is a new debate. I've exhausted my patience on it years ago.
