India Shows Us The Future Of Marriage In The US
What do you mean you’re against gay marriage?!?!? What are you? Some kind of Bible thumping, hate mongering, bigoted, monster who wants to deny gay people the right to marry? What about their civil rights, huh? Why do you want to deny gay people the same rights that you heterosexuals take for granted? What about equal rights huh, huh, huh?
So do you give in? You do? Great! We’ll just get a few activist judges to side with us — we can’t risk letting the voters or legislatures actually have a say here because they might not go the right way — and there we go! We’ve shown that marriage can be whatever we want it to be!
Oh and by the way, take a look at this story from India…
“A 25-year-old Indian man has married his 80-year-old grandmother because he wanted to take care of her.
“I felt she needed extra care as she is old. I can look after her better as a husband than as a grandson,” Narayan Biswas told Reuters.
“As a husband, I am with her all the time, to care for her,” said the high school graduate, who farms rice fields and also works as a tutor.
The grandmother, her back bent with age, says she is “happy” with her young husband whom she married in a traditional Hindu ceremony near Panchpara, a village 100 miles west of Calcutta. Her first husband died more than 30 years ago.”
So…do you support letting people marry their grandmothers? No?!?!? What are you? Some kind of Bible thumping, hate mongering, bigoted, monster who wants to deny people the right to marry their grandmothers? What about their civil rights, huh? Why do you want to deny family members the same rights that you non-related people take for granted? What about equal rights huh, huh, huh?
In all seriousness, some of you may think this is farfetched, but it’s not. Let me refer you back to a quote from Antonin Scalia’s dissent in the Lawrence v. Texas case — that’s the one that cleared the way for gay marriage by the way — so you can see what I’m talking about…
“State laws against bigamy, same-sex marriage, adult incest, prostitution, masturbation, adultery, fornication, bestiality, and obscenity are likewise sustainable only in light of Bowers’ validation of laws based on moral choices. Every single one of these laws is called into question by today’s decision; the Court makes no effort to cabin the scope of its decision to exclude them from its holding.”
Anyone who thinks that gay marriage can become the law of the land without eventually leading to polygamy and family members being allowed to marry as well is just kidding himself…
