Everytime I hear about arguments against Gay Marriage, I ask the people who make them “Why does it Matter”? The GLBT aren’t going to somehow denigrate our straight marriage.

And that’s why they fear Gay Marriage. It’s not that the world will end or that it’s a slippery slope where you can now get into a polyamorous wedding with a redwood tree and a dolphin. It’s not that a god will rain hellfire on us like a bored Simcity Player.
It’s that we are afraid that they will show us up and we are jealous.
