The war on marriage has been going on for decades now, but only in the past ten years have those that wish to redefine marriage gained any traction. Liberals and their allies in congress are trying to redefine marriage to the detriment of families everywhere inside the United States.
My interactions with liberals show that, among other things, they wish to summarily destroy the foundations of society. These foundations are liberty, morality, marriage, culture and religion. Their most recent barrage has come in trying to force gay marriage upon the populace through the courts and backroom deals that negate the votes that millions have cast in opposition to the redefinition of marriage. They cite the 2003 court case Lawrence v. Texas in which the courts decided that the government has no right to criminalize any act committed in private. Since then, pro-gay marriage groups have used the court decision to push for the legalization, at the state level and the federal level as a ‘civil right’.
Liberals creepily urge that gay marriage and full marriage rights be granted to homosexual couples despite the facts that gay couples are far less likely to stay together beyond three years than heterosexual people. They also seem to ignore the fact that in European countries in general and Scandinavian countries in particular, allowing homosexual marriage has led to the complete breakdown of the family and has led directly to the birth rate out of wedlock skyrocketing to well over 50%. Marriage is also looked at disdainfully by the youth who, due to lack of structure and discipline in the home, are increasingly turning to crime and anarchist groups to fulfill the void.
But, seemingly beyond the pale years ago, moves are being made to further break down marriage to not only between two men, two women or a man and a woman, but also to include two women and one man, two men and one woman or any other combination of men and women. Polygamy has been banned in the United States for decades and the unofficial reason the Mormon church moved to Salt Lake City in Utah.
How sick is the idea that marriage could include polygamists and polyamorists (those that ‘trade’ husbands and wives for relations between members of the ‘marriage’)? Could one not think of a more vile and creepy way of defining marriage? Well it seems those at NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) did. They seem to believe that a boy as young as 13 can be considered consenting to sexual relations with adult men. Similar groups are coming out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are to petition to decriminalize pedophilia. Such activities are going on and no one can deny them. Marriage is under attack from the left constantly. Americans need to stand up and say that marriage is between one man and one woman. Period.
But the sad truth is, Americans have said that and they continue to do so, yet their votes are being struck down as the issue going to an election is being dubbed unconstitutional. Activist judges and leftist government officials deem the people’s voices hateful and try to overturn the state bans on gay marriage. Christians and conservatives need to come to the defense of marriage before it is too late. Don’t let the left redefine marriage. Because after marriage between one man and one woman is no longer honored, the slope gets slippery and we can see the bottom even now.
