Today in Massachusetts, gay marriage became the law of the land. Even though Massachusetts is one of the most liberal states in the union, gay marriage couldn’t win at the ballot box or in the legislature. No, it won in the courts, where four Massachusetts Supreme Court Justices overrode the will of the people and ignored thousands and thousands of years worth of human history and tradition that says marriage is between a man and a woman.
Quite frankly, today may turn out to be one of the low points in the entire history of our nation. The beginning of the end of the relevance of marriage, the building block of our society.
Today, gays are getting married, soon polygamy will follow. Heck, if you ask me, you can make a better case for polygamy than you can for gay marriage. In fact, if Andrew Sullivan wanted to marry three wives instead of another man, we’d probably be complaining about Utah legalizing Polygamy today instead of Massachusetts putting their stamp of approval on gay marriage.
But, give it a couple of decades and we’ll have people marrying the dead as they do in France, animals as they do in India, and you might as well throw adult siblings into the mix because that won’t be far behind. Of course, advocates of gay marriage, most of them at least, will deny that. But, hasn’t that always been what Americans have been told as they were dragged kicking and screaming down the slippery slope towards gay marriage?
Eventually, as marriage becomes totally debased and meaningless except as a method to get gov’t benefits or insurance, most people won’t bother to get married and we’ll see skyrocketing crime and drug use, single mothers mired in poverty raising their kids, and all the other ills befall our society that go along with illegitimacy.
If all these things happened overnight, it would be easy to get people to understand what the problem is with gay marriage. However, because all of these events will take time, years, and in some cases decades to manifest, it’s difficult to impress how urgent it is to fight against gay marriage right now.
We have a fairly limited window in which to act. In all likelihood, what’s going to happen next is that some gay couple that gets married will move to a state that has the Federal Marriage Amendment in place. They will challenge it, the case will work it’s way up to the Supreme Court level, and it will lose because of the “full faith and credit” clause which will then lead to gay marriage being imposed on the entire United States. Most people simply do not understand that gay marriage will probably become the law of the land without ever winning at the ballot box…..unless, we get a Federal Marriage Amendment enacted to stop the courts from imposing their will on the people of the United States.
I would encourage you to contact your Congressmen and Senators and to support President Bush who’s fighting for the FMA. It’s not too late to stop gay marriage yet, but the clock is ticking…
