True, Marriage is between One Man and One Woman, that is a Sacrament and one that many are prepared to sacrifice for.
However, I also believe that in the US the Constitution Rules, and one may contract for whatever one wishes aside from Slavery.
When the moral underpinnings of our country are successfully smashed, you can even contract to kill little babies.
Like a contract for murder foe example?
Gay marriage is an abomination of the highest order. Nor brain dead piece of propaganda from the fast fading Washington Post is going to change that.
However, I also believe that in the US the Constitution Rules, and one may contract for whatever one wishesOnly if it's legal. In some states it's illegal.
Let them call it Fratrimony for lack of a better word. And a man cannot have a husband, that's just creepy. Call the other guy a brubond.
Where does the Constitution give special rights based on aberrant behavior. Early in our history there were laws in every state against sodomy. Virginia's law had the death penalty. Do you really believe that the Founders thought it normal that a man looked at another man's hairy behind and "fell in love"?
So, what does that have to do with marriage? Or are you swallowing the Koolaid too?
Marriage is from a religious perspective a contract between man, woman, and God. From a societal perspective it is a contract between man, woman, and society.
There is no Constitutional power to contract that which supersedes God the unalienable nor is there power to force such a contract as society regards destructive and without value upon society.
If homosexuals wish to play house then they can do it on their own dime -society places no value in the absurd and will not be forced to grant privilege, subsidize, or reward it...
