Remember how religious conservatives insisted that allowing same-sex couples to marry would destroy the institution of marriage? Yeah, no: The CDC says more Americans married in last year and fewer married couples divorced. The numbers are small—tiny uptick in the marriage rate (reversing a 15 year trend), tiny downtick in the divorce rate—and this CDC report covers 2014, the year before the Supreme Court made marriage equality the law of the land. But same-sex couples were already marrying in a majority of states in 2014.

And 2014 or 2015: If marriage rates were down a even a fraction of a tick and divorce rates were up even a fraction of a tick... Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz and that homicidal anti-gay preacher/terrorist they were pallin' around with would be howling about the evidence being in, holding up a single CDC report as proof that marriage equality was already laying waste to the super-sacred institution of marriage. Why, the third, fourth, and fifth marriages of Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump, and Rush Limbaugh might be in danger! They'd be out there calling for the next president of these united states to spark a constitutional crisis by ignoring the Supreme Court's ruling on marriage equality.

Actually... Mike Huckabee is already promising us a constitutional crisis if he's our next president:

At Friday’s “Presidential Family Forum” hosted by the Iowa conservative group The Family Leader, Mike Huckabee doubled down on his pledge to “ignore the court” and “defy the court” as president by recriminalizing abortion and gay marriage through executive fiats. “I’m convinced the next president should ignore the unconstitutional and illegal rulings of the courts, including that of same-sex marriage, because it is not the law of the land,” Huckabee said.

Spoiler: Mike Huckabee is not going to be our next president.
