    Evidence? Reasoning ? Logic ? I don't need to show any evidence . Everything I said here is self evident and common knowledge . You can google everything I said yourself . I never make things up on the internet .
    If you think there's no "logic or reasoning" in my post, this is your problem, not mine .

    Same sex marriage is no more having an adverse effect on "traditional marriage " than allowing blacks and women to vote in the past had an adverse effect on the voting rights of white males or
    repealing miscegenation laws had an adverse effect on marriage . Don't be fooled by all the hysterical right-wing fear and hate mongering .
    the lack of fathers among blacks is not due to any changes in marriage laws . It is due to the rampant poverty, unemployment and hopelessness caused by the Republican , really repugnican party .
    In general, it's become harder and harder for people to get married , have children and support them decently and to live stable lives than ever before .
    The Republicans who complain about the "breakup of the family " in congress are to blame for it .

    You are clearly set against the acceptance of SSM, and support the existing policies of the 41 States.
    Your OP is hard set against SSM, even blaming it's acceptance as:-

    Redefining marriage is also a direct and demonstrable threat to religious freedom because it marginalizes those who affirm marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
    Now.... which part of my suggestion are you having difficulty in understanding?
    SSM does not marginalise Hetrosexual marriages, it simply bonds and protects two women or two men together in a physically and legally secure way. Many marriages do not produce children, and at this time that is a great blessing for the World. We are over-populated, you know.

    Let me answer for @MrDante , by writing your OP you 'done' a very definite 'thing' to/against the promotion of SSM.

    ......... or... put me right.... just tell me that you would support SSM in your whole country, in all of it's States. OK?

    What is *their politics* outside of wishing to to live their lives with the same freedoms that the rest of us enjoy ... and take for granted?
    Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies,
    their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such,
    for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it.

    The belief that it's no different in function or value to actual marriage.

    The only function and value of marriage that is relevant is ... that of the couple's.
