Same-Sex Marriage Changes Nothing

Standard

A popular argument in favor of same sex marriage is: ‘everyone else is doing it so we should too.’

Does that make sense to you?

This is a social issue confronting a society that is basically democratic in nature and in tradition and what Argentina and Mexico , among others, are doing is hardly relevant.

The bottom line is: this is another place where the Federal Government has taken away Constitutionally mandated states rights; however it happened so long ago and is so entrenched in Federal law that the fact that marriage should be decided by the community or by the state is now moot. So let’s ignore that!

Personally, I think that any two adults should be allowed to wed, without regard to their race, gender, religious or political beliefs and I believe this will soon be the accepted norm in the U.S.

The Federal Government certainly wants to maintain it’s investment in the business of controlling marriage through tax law, Social Security and etc. and there is no legal basis for rejecting same-sex marriage.

Some marriages will be “blessed” by both the state and by various religious entities and others will be purely civil marriages — other’s will be considered common law marriages authorized by neither church or state (but, in the end, regulated by the state). That’s the way it is now — the only difference is that once this legal challange has been resolved, some of those marriages will be male-male and some female-female.

The only opponents to same sex marriage are those who oppose it based on their religious convictions — they will continue to oppose it until the end of time, and it is their right to do so, and they will continue to issue legal challanges but they will be (and should be) quickly struck down.

This country is known for religious freedom but it will never be a theocracy.
