I am not particularly fond of divorcing the arguments against same-sex marriage from the Biblical standpoint. My position is that the Bible offers the most authoritative refutation of same-sex marriage as a direct revelation from God. However, there is a case against same-sex marriage that does not depend on Biblical passages. In fact, Frank Turek Offers an argument against same-sex marriage without using a single Bible verse. He presents his case first in summary and fields the common objections. Following, he goes further in depth to substantiate his argument with substantive data and analysis to support his premises. I think Turek’s argument stands or falls on his referenced studies. Given contemporary division on the subject, some may be able to counter his data with new or more reliable data that undercuts his premise that same-sex marriage is detrimental to society. Nevertheless, he offers precise counters to the common objections to notion itself that deserves a reading.

Hey, thanks, that was a pretty funny read.
'Substantive data & analysis'? Don't think so.
Turek definitely goes into my grabbag of kooks, so thanks.

Hey thanks, that was a pretty unsubstantiated comment. Oh, and nice move at poisoning the well.

Go easy on KA. He is a liberal. And if a liberal cannot substantiate they will play on words (but your not allowed too) and when that fails....they will just re-define it!

TIO,

I’m sure a response would be primarily name calling (perhaps not). I also, gave the formula were Turek’s argument stands or falls. Even if positive data can be made to counter Turek, the subjective meta-ethical brouhaha would prevail. However, as I said in the post, and why I posted the link,: “Given contemporary division on the subject, some may be able to counter his data with new or more reliable data that undercuts his premise that same-sex marriage is detrimental to society. Nevertheless, he offers precise counters to the common objections to notion itself that deserves a reading.”


It's a good read. But I think the U.S is on the path to Canada’s marriage mishaps (no offense).

No offense taken. Your Nation is heading for a spider's web of constituional challenges and both civil and religious liberties violations from both ends.

It has been prohesied here at your site. Take note...it is about to get very dark and ugly. Our nation, after just one year, is now bringing the whole debate back to the House of Commons in October because of the tangled mess it has caused.

Your liberals down there would say "look at Canada". I don't think they are looking close enough. Your nation would be far better off staying away from it all.
