This video has been viral on several websites. There's no way so far to verify, but the evidence supports it. Warning - it's harsh. From TheAdvocate.com "

Sentient - I too read something about children raised by same-sex parents being a bit more empathetic and less bound to rigid gender roles. (And the problem with that is...?)

@ Sentient - now that is a PERFECT example of right wing nutcase logic! Another argument against gay marriage is it wrecks Oscar Wilde's claim that "'Marriage' and 'bigamy' are much the same; both mean having one wife too many."

I dont have links, but I have read that same sex marriages tend to be more egalitarian compared to opposite sex marriages. There is a hint of evidence that children raised in same sex parent families, may be more balanced and well socialized too. That will be the next argument against marriage equality. if gay married couples are more mutually supportive, and give their kids a better start in life, that makes "traditional families" look bad, and feel bad, Families are supposed to be dysfunctional, therefore gay marriages threaten "tradional marriages" by setting too high a standard.

I remember as far back as 1967 (and farther) when police in some towns (cities) raided gay bars just for the hell of it. Once in Minneapolis, our company manager had to bail out most of the boys chorus line (and a couple of principal skaters) one day, or we would not have been able to put on a show.  All that was going on, as far as I know, was that the guys were having a drink or two, and meeting some of the "locals."  That was NEVER an actual crime!

@GC -- no kidding! As some pundit a while back put it, "The love that dare not speak its name has become the love that won't shut up!" I'm still waiting to hear how it is that marriage equality "threatens" traditional marriage. It's kind of like waiting for god to answer a prayer!

That is quite a reversal from the times when courts routinely considered LGB people diseased criminals, to this hearing, when the best argument presented against equal marriage is that same-sex couples are "too responsible" to need it!

Wisconsin and Indiana's arguments against gay marriage apparently did not go so well for them:

Desperate new argument against same-sex marriage laughed out of court
