It absolutely amazes me how glibly we toss aside one of the pillars of our civilization! Marriage, after thousands of years of history, is being redefined by the so-called enlightened, and we are told -- as it seems we are always told -- any opposition to this radical agenda is hateful. Not surprisingly, it's the same argument posited by tantrum-addled unruly children, who blanch at the prospect of boundaries being levied by their parents. "They won't allow me to do whatever it is I want to do, Waaah... they hate me." Yes, this childish form of reasoning is an adoptive means of radical-reckoning. Opposing opinions and those holding them, are hateful. Gosh! How does one even begin to refute such vacuous logic? Pandering, for them is virtue; governance, vice.
Cicero said, "The wise are instructed by reason, ordinary minds by experience, the stupid out of necessity, and brutes by instinct." Reason would instruct that Marriage is the province of a Bride and her Groom. We are told however, that we need to experience a more freer, all-encompassing redefinition of marriage. We are told that the established rules and laws of marriage are outdated, archaic, and we need to be more open-minded. After all, imperfect humans have not yet perfected traditional marriage. Therefore, we must allow the self-appointed "enlightened" to morph it into something unrecognizable, a cacophony, some puckish nuptial mockery.
The depth, weight and scope of historical precedence notwithstanding, does anyone have to look any further than the revised marriage application form in order to realize the absurdity of same-sex marriage? Where once upon a time in a land not so very far away, they requested the names of the prospective Bride and Groom, Marriage applicants now have to fill-in the blanks for, Party A and Party B! The irony is inescapable. In their supposed quest to elevate humanity, the purveyors of such nonsense had to sanitize and degenderize its participants. If there's a glimmer of hope, perhaps it's reflected in the recent protestations of people in (of all places) France! Ultimately, time will out. Rest assured, in the meantime there will be a terrible price to pay for this insanity.
