Brad, I'd heard that criticism too of the homosexual community, that, typically, they were more promiscuous than the heterosexual community. I'd be interested in finding out if there is actually any data behind that criticism, or if it is just a misperception. I really don't know one way or the other. The couple of gay couples that I know seem to be monogomous, but I don't know that many. But I'd agree, committment and monogomy are healthier choices.
To me, the bottom line in the current fiasco is the rule of law. I think that if you don't agree with a law, you should work within the system to change it, not engage in civil disobedience, either as a form of protest, or as a 'thumbing your nose' at the system, especially by civil servants who have taken an oath to uphold the law, and I think that they should be removed from office for not upholding their oath of office. To me at least, the only acceptable or permissable time to disregard a law would be to save a life, mine or someone else's, if it ever came down to that, but not merely because I don't agree with a particular law. Otherwise you just have people being a law unto themselves and you have anarchy. I can't see that as being good for the overall social fabric.
