Same-Sex Marriage Lowers Divorce Rates

From Rachel Maddow. Massachusetts already had a low divorce rate, but since same-sex marriage was legalized in the state five years ago, their divorce rate has now dropped to levels not seen since before WWII. And yet, the Catholic Church, the fundies, and other hate groups still tell us that recognizing all families will hurt marriage.

Sadly, those groups have always been the best at living in denial of reality...

So here's a reason to be glad to be from mass... (though I've lived away from there longer than I lived there and I wasn't born there...but it is where I lived my childhood until leaving for college)

I would totally marry Rachel Maddow to test that theory.

Some people just won't hear any truth that breaks down their argument. It's sad.

I do so love her! Who else would come up with a commentary like that. Go, Rachel!
