At Last, the Evidence

By now you may well have heard about Australians Nick and Sarah Jensen, the Christian couple threatening to divorce if same-sex marriage becomes legal in Australia.

Sure, the Jensens have been ridiculed around the world, but I want to take a moment to do something else.  I want to thank them.

For years preachers and politicians have thundered that marriage will be harmed if gays can legally wed.  For years I've labored to understand that argument.  Now, finally, here's the proof!  On a planet of over 7 billion people, two individuals in Canberra feel sufficiently put out by the prospect of gay marriage that they might divorce.

That's enough for me.  I'm getting my marriage annulled in the morning.
