California Removes 'Husband' and 'Wife' from California Marriage Law
Townhall ^ | July 8, 2014 | Sarah Jean Seman

Posted on 07/08/2014 4:28:53 PM PDT by lilyramone

One word can make all the difference when it comes to definitions. Exhibit A: exchange the words “husband and wife” for a more inclusive term, and you have the phrase “I now pronounce you spouses.” In the state of California, they are paying special attention to keep their vernacular as progressive as possible.

Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed a bill Monday to formally make marriage gender-neutral to reflect the state’s allowance of same-sex unions. According to Senate Bill 1306:

They’ll keep pushing this until they go so far that people will just ignore them. It will all become silly.

I have no reason to get married and no child can ever call me daddy.

Daddy is not a recognized term and he can just grow up with a parent....who decided not to end his life before his 1st 9 months....

Well of course, we have to be liberal and change words.

Just as we aren’t Allowed to say illegal aliens anymore, we are not allowed to say husband and wife. Might hurt some liberal feelings.

I now pronounce you spouses

How romantic. "Spouse" has such a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

Unfortunately, "spouse" is defined as "a husband or wife, considered in relation to their partner," so I think the PC police will be trying again soon. How about, "I now prouncue you significant others"?

Well, back in the old days, they said man and wife. They changed that to husband and wife due to women’s lib. Now the next step is a term such as spouse which has no gender identification to it.

They’re fighting God and nature.

So, it is a certainty that they will lose.

The only question at this point is whether we will allow ourselves to go down to destruction with them.

As mentioned in related threads, and pro-gay, PC interpretations of the 14th Amendment's (14A) Equal Protections Clause aside, the states have never amended the Constitution to expressly protect so-called gay rights, including gay marriage. In fact justices from the same generation that ratified 14A had officially clarified that 14A did not add new protections to the Constitution. It just strengthened existing protections.
“3. The right of suffrage was not necessarily one of the privileges or immunities of citizenship before the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment, and that amendment does not add to these privileges and immunities. It simply furnishes additional guaranty for the protection of such as the citizen already had [emphasis added].” —Minor v. Happersett, 1874.

So since the states have never amended the Constitution to expressly protect gay marriage, either before or after 14A was ratified, it remains that such “rights” are constitutionally unprotected, each state free to make its own decisions about gay marriage.

Liberals can’t destroy or cancel the fact that reality itself is against their sick theories, so Liberals destroy the language so no one can describe reality. If we can’t describe reality; i.e., use words to describe reality, we can in no way refute the idiocies of today’s liberals.

Sorry, Jerry Brown. That's not what God had in mind.

Pope says marriage between man, woman is image of God

Catholic Church opposed to gay marriage

(ANSA) - Vatican City, April 2 - Pope Francis told around 45,000 faithful in St Peter's Square that marriage between a man and a woman was a image of God's love during his general audience on Wednesday. "When a man and a woman celebrate the sacrament of marriage, God is reflected in them," the Argentine pontiff said. "He imposes His features in them and the indelible character of His love. "The image of God is the married couple - not just the man, not just the women, but both...
and this is very beautiful".
Francis has made openings to gay people since being elected the head of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics last year, saying on one occassion "who am I?" to judge homosexuals who seek God. But the fact he stressed the importance of marriage between a man and woman pn Wednesday is likely to be interpreted as a reiteration of the Church's opposition to the legalisation of gay marriage in some parts of the world

Hey, Jerry Brown, you are wrong!

Genesis 1

English Standard Version (ESV)

26 Then God said, “Let us make man[h] in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

27 So God created man in his own image,
    in the image of God he created him;
    male and female he created them.

28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. 30 And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
