It takes time and patience for old beliefs to come around. Change in response to new evidence is possible. Same sex marriage is slowly gaining acceptance in this country. In six US states it is now legal. Think tanks such as the Ruth institute have been created to try to counter what they see as propaganda to attack ‘natural marriage’ but this time the tide seems to be turning at least in some parts of the country. In my post on the Ruth Institute I also checked out their claim that Scandinavian countries generous family leave policies (two years paid maternity leave in Sweden) also discourage natural marriage which are debunked in the post.
