I've had some arguments rolling around in my head (as I drive to and from work) against gay marriage.
Friday, I heard one on the radio put succinctly.
I was about to make a similar argument on the air the previous day, but work intervened.
Mark Davis put it better, and the guy he was politely and charitably discussing it with was a target rich opportunity.
The caller was seemingly a conservative, or I doubt he would have enjoyed listening daily as he claimed.
That means he just didn't understand or believe the host every time he explained church/state, for one.
To be laissez-faire on gay marriage is sometimes to be intellectually lazy-fare.
That person will allow himself to be robbed, because the meaning of his words will be stolen from him.
To redefine marriage is to redefine family. The family is already redefined with gay adoptions.
The redefinition of marriage is a natural extension.
There is a difference between men and women.
You know it, I know it.
Yet there are those who deny it to bring about a change in society that they envision.
In a very real Orwellian sense, you too must not notice the difference or the house of cards collapses.
Therefore, there must be "equal" signs on Facebook to demonstrate that you are willing to accept the fiction.
Thankfully I haven't seen these among my "friends" some who are pro-gay marriage.
If I'd seen one, I'd have had to create a "not-equal" profile photo to post.
"Equal" is not "Same"!
Tab "A" goes in Slot "B".
Tab "A" doesn't fit Tab "A" correctly.
Slot "B" can never go in Slot "B".
On another note, the equal protection standard does not apply.
It was put rather succinctly at American Thinker yesterday.
Restricting gay marriage restricts heterosexuals from same sex marriage as well as homosexuals.
It's equality in action!
I'm not offended that I cannot marry a male, even though the law limits me from doing so.
So then, why should we care?
Because men and women are different.
Men have an effect as father's and women as mothers.
Necessary effects. As role models, guides and nurturers.
They don't always get it right.
But on the average it works.
The way it was designed.
oh darn, there's that church/state thing again.
The way "nature" intended (evolved it), if you prefer.
And so the kids grow up being better nurtured and guided.
And they become the basis of the next generation of a healthy society.
A society that affects us all.
Well, thanks for stopping by.
