Marriage is a union between a man and a woman, homosexual shacking up is domestic unions or whatever name they’re using this week. There is no ‘gay marriage’ as it is contrary to the standard definition.
I see no reason to change from the choice of dictionary writers for centuries, nor the basic laws of every state marriage legislation, and the only reason why this case is in federal court was because the people of California, when their judges refused to follow the people’s wishes, reiterated a basic dictionary definition into the state constitution, since apparently homosexual shacking up advocates couldn’t bother to read the dictionary.
In no way is this an issue of freedom, nor is this an issue of conservative values - in no way are traditional families helped by homosexual shacking up becoming equal, in the eyes of the law, to marriage. In fact, it’s already had the opposite effect, where a birth mother is ordered to give up her daughter to a former shackee, simply for refusing to let that former shackee near her daughter.
I’m not sure why this is so hard to understand. Every gay in America can go out and get married tomorrow, no one is stopping them. Just bring a partner of an opposite sex. How hard is that to understand?
