In a riff on gay marriage, Chris Rock said: “Gay people got a right to be as miserable as everybody else.” The religionists meet their match in Tom Tomorrow when they display their ignorance in talking about marital physiology and procreation. Besides, if traditional marriage is sooooooooo sacred, why do 50% percent of first marriages, 67% of second and 74% of third marriages end in divorce? This stat of the day is provided by the United States Bureau of the Census. Hell, D-I-V-0-R-C-E is more sacred than matrimony in the USA. If this is a (fair & balanced) exposure of hypocrisy, so be it.
