"It used to be socially unacceptable
to have premartial sex, but acceptable to
mistreat people who were a different race.
Now its just the opposite."

I disagree. It is no longer socially acceptable to mistreat people of certain colors or certain religions, but it is acceptable to mistreat people of other colors, religions, and size. All we have done is change the protected class.

Groups that are PC to mistreat:

Especially Mormons
Fat people
White people

And of some of each political party totally demean and mistreat all of differing views from themselves, some even resorting to calling the others racists.

I don't call that improvement.

Pagan, Massachussetts' divorce rate is low because the state's *marriage* rate is low. You can't get divorced if you don't get married. - TheProudDuck

And yet, Massachusetts was the first state to allow gay marriage in 2004.

Today, in 2013 you can cite zero adverse effects of gay marriage. Even the article I provided was x5 years after gay marriage was legal in MA.

Please, keep up.

x5 years after gay marriage, MA has the lowest divorce rate, since the 1940's.

Zero adverse effect.

Re Copy Cat

I don't believe it is socially acceptable to mistreat Mormons or white people or other Christians. Fat people? Not really that acceptable either. Many Evengelical Christians believe the earth or universe is 12,000 years old and I have seen ridicule of this belief because there is so much evidence to refute it, but that's about it.
