Chick-fil-A Same-Sex Kiss Day EPIC FAIL
I've largely stayed out of the whole Chick-fil-A gay marriage hubbub largely for the reasons I've mentioned before. I don't think churches should be forced to perform marriage ceremonies against their beliefs and I don't see how the government recognizing same-sex domestic partnerships hurt anyone.
Throughout history marriage has traditionally been a symbolic ceremony reserved for churches. They were meant to be a public, life long commitment between a man and a woman. To add weight to that commitment, vows are taken in a church before God. Breaking that vow, therefore, would be an affront to the all mighty.
Unfortunately, the integrity of Americans have declined significantly over the last 150 years and people just don't seem to mind breaking their vows, whether it be to love one another as long as you both so shall live or to defend the United States Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.
The truth is marriage licenses weren't even required by the U.S. government until after the Civil War. The rules regulating the granting of a state issued marriage licenses say nothing about love or vows. The state issued marriage license is simply a legal document that regulates the future division of assets and responsibilities when a domestic partnership dissolves. A state issued marriage license is literally no different than a business license for a business partnership. One defines partnerships for household expenses and assets, the other for business entity assets and expenses.
Having said all that, the reason the Chick-fil-A Same-Sex Kiss Day is an EPIC FAIL is because the issue that the media and Democrats would like you to believe is the 'civil rights issue of our time' simply isn't.
According to the latest U.S. Census data, same-sex couples account for less than one percent of U.S. households. But that hasn't stopped liberal activists, who appear to be trying to channel their inner Republican, from wanting to make gay marriage a civil rights issue comparable to the inequality of women and blacks suffered at the hands of Democrats in the first half of the 20th century.
To put it plainly, you won't find legions of same-sex couples making out in Chick-fil-A lobbies across America because there simply aren't that many of them available to do so. There are very few homosexuals in our society and there are even fewer homosexuals who want to get married.
