From A Tenable Belief:

In an April 29 column in The Washington Post, William Saletan “notes that 6,000-7,000 couples have taken up covenant marriage since 1997, and over 40,000 gay and lesbian couples have taken their commitments to the maximum level allowed, be it registering as domestic partners, civil unions, or marriage….”

Fewer than one percent of heterosexual couples have upgraded their marriages at a time when self-described moral conservatives have succeeded in passing constitutional “protection” of these lackluster couples from the threat of loyal and monogamous same-sex-attracted couples.

Given the unpopularity of truly committed marriage among the religious rightists, in all seriousness why not permit covenant marriages for gay couples?
