Stanley Kurtz routinely trots out some statistics that imply that heterosexual marriage went into decline when gay marriage was allowed in Scandivavia. But the statistics are completely bogus.
"Despite what Kurtz might say, the apocalypse has not yet arrived. In fact, the numbers show that heterosexual marriage looks pretty healthy in Scandinavia, where same-sex couples have had rights the longest. In Denmark, for example, the marriage rate had been declining for a half-century but turned around in the early 1980s. After the 1989 passage of the registered-partner law, the marriage rate continued to climb; Danish heterosexual marriage rates are now the highest they've been since the early 1970's. And the most recent marriage rates in Sweden, Norway, and Iceland are all higher than the rates for the years before the partner laws were passed. Furthermore, in the 1990s, divorce rates in Scandinavia remained basically unchanged."
I don't know why the more thoughtful members of the conservative camp let this crap stand. Can't they see how stupid it makes them all look?
