From uber-bigot and wingnut Ken Hutcherson:
History has taught us one thing, and that is that the only thing we have learned from history is that we don’t learn from history. The Babylonian empire failed, the Persian Empire failed, the Greek Empire failed, and the Roman Empire was dispersed when the people failed to remember what made them great. The common denominator for the failure of all these world powers was the breakdown of the family. We, the United States of America, are the last world power to date, and the same will happen to us if we do not protect the family. How does the family fail? It is the breakdown of marriage.
Now if there was just a shred of evidence for such meaningless babble, he might have a point.
