Marriage a la Mode

The gay marriage issue merely demonstrates the power of gays and radical progressives in the media and schools. It doesn't change anything, certainly not the meaning of marriage. If the issue is so popular and so assured why do the radical liberals not let it be fought out in election booths at the state level? Why must it be imposed by the courts? The issue will merely further politicize the court and erode the constitution. If the tax laws and other supposed unequal treatment harms single people, by all means change the laws, but why erode the constitution? The answer is simple, because that is the real goal.

Sometimes (see slavery, women's suffrage, school segregation) the majority wrongly strips a minority of its rights. That is the case with this issue.

You are quite right;

Homosexuals have every right to Pretend Marriage.

My unemployed relative in SoCal hasn't made a mortgage payment in over 4 months. He is now pretending on the record that his home is all paid for. I'm sure the bank is going to allow him to squat on the property.

No US Constitution Rights are being denied homosexuals unless you have a perverted idea of rights.

They can still pretend. By law you cannot be stopped from any PRETENSE. The complete agenda of homosexual and lesbian life is pretense. A happy (not gay) homosexual and/or butch dyke pretends to be GAY. You only help their agenda by referring to them as gays; and they know it. So, they pretend to be gay.

Same with normal. All of them pretend to the normal mode of life. You cannot arrest a perve for pretending he/she is normal or natural. If you're a serious American you may protest: they lie to us. But nobody can stop them.

Step by step, they promote their agenda by merely pretending.

The American public's apparent surrender to same-sex marriage -- the Pew Research Center says 49 percent of us now support it, with just 44 percent opposed -- has been much remarked lately. I think I can explain it in part.

The problem is with the failure of the culture to take marriage itself with the seriousness it used to receive. Connected more with pleasure than with responsibility, marriage functions more and more as just as a set of personal preferences. If it feels good, tastes good, looks good, etc., -- hey, why not? If none of the above, never mind....
