Skip to comments.“Marriage Equality” Spells “Marriage Extinction”
Posted on 03/25/2013 8:57:25 AM PDT by Olog-hai
This week the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on two of the most critical cases of our time. On Tuesday, March 26, attorneys will make the pitch both for and against Californias Proposition 8. This, of course, is the Golden States pro-marriage amendment. It maintained the timeless definition of natural marriage as between man and wife.
Then, on Wednesday, March 27, the high court will consider the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), passed in 1996 with overwhelming bipartisan support and signed into law by then President Bill Clinton. It, likewise, secured the definition of legitimate marriage for purposes of federal law.
The stakes could not be higher. Of central concern is whether the Supreme Court will put its official stamp of approval on that cartoonish contradiction-in-terms labeled same-sex marriage. Ultimately, these nine justices will decide either to recklessly deconstruct, radically redefine and render functionally trivial the age-old institution of natural marriageor leave it alone.
Theyd better leave it alone.

Yes. Think about it, what legal footing would you have to say no to this. If two men or two women are now a definition of marriage; what is so special about the number 2? Why can't a man have 4 wives, or a woman, four husbands. Then again, what is so bad about a "group marriage", with various combinations of adults.
Then, the push will be on to lower the age of consent, and, we will have child brides; and, if you are against that you are a hater. What does the psychiatric community now call pedophila? Intergenerational sex. Nice phrase. No judgement in it at all.
This is not a slippery slope, this is the edge of an abyss.
We are losing anyway. What do you think the SC will do?
I work with nurses. High divorce rate.
Are we losing? I don’t think so. The media likes to play it up that way. Remember what Sun Tzu’s Art Of War described as the “highest form of warfare”, that being to break the enemy’s resistance without fighting; don’t fall for it.
And on the spiritual side, if the devil is indeed becoming more powerful in the world, that in itself is a highly prophetic event.
Of course it is a highly prophetic event. I have no doubt we are living in the last days. In fact, I truly believe Obama is God’s judgment on America.
How marriage is defined has ramifications on the entire society. Children need their mothers. Children need their fathers. The social decay we already see is largely due to widespread divorce, out of wedlock births, and people wandering from one relationship to another.
And now the powers that be want to obliterate what is left. Bride, groom, husband, wife, mother, father - these words are to be tossed aside. The marital act? Consummation of marriage? Well that is to be considered just the same as sterile abnormal and unhealthy acts.
It isn’t irrelevant to me. This is the new world my kids are growing up in.
I understand your point, but its come time to simply ignore the government and seperate ourselves, akin to how the Amish have done.
It’s possible to do so.

If the black robed ones decide the wrong way, we still have options. Civil disobedience. Acting on our conscience. Millions of people doing so will have an effect. Things don't go downhill forever.

Your comments have nothing to do with the situation. They’re trying to disembowel natural law. Forcing people to accept insanity as sanity, is immoral and unconstitutional. Of course people who marry still have “real” marriages, if they honor their vows. But when publically and legally and socially and politically the laws of nature are made “null and void”, this has real life affects. Such as the destruction of the lives of many children. And legally forcing all kinds of businesses to cater to mentally ill sex perverts, schools to teach immoral insanity and on and on. It’s already happening in states with same sex “marriage”.
“Yes. Think about it, what legal footing would you have to say no to this. If two men or two women are now a definition of marriage; what is so special about the number 2?

My brother and I love each other and want to marry. We’re consenting adults and unable to have children. If 2 men or 2 women can get married, then I should be able to marry my brother...or my dad...or my mother...or my sister....
just when will the American people stand up>
Will it be when their 401 goes to hell or when they are directly hurt?
They had better wake up to what this family and this far left admin are doing .
Waiting till they have nothing , being sued, being charged a visit off the cops for speaking out on a certain issue is too late
yea one problem though, blood test, marriage certificate, divorce, who gets the kids, get the house etc.
I;m sick of this turd poking strap on wearing agenda, hell just because Hollywood has loads of them doe snot mean many other parts of this country does.
MA might have a ton as might NY City but many other parts do not and we are sick of this crap agenda.
If the court gets rid of DOMA then all lawsuits for adoption agencies , churches, even the cake maker will be sued and the queers had beter not stop or compain when polygamy comes to us too because it was their baby tantrum actionsand arguments which caused this mess.
One line in the sand is marraige and th eother line is anything
I know damn well where I stand and if anyone comes here and tells me they are married in their sham they will be told very quickly that they;re not
it;s very impossible to have communities like the Amish in the real world and watch all the alwsuits to adoption agencies, churches, etc
Non of this should have happened and would not if our sdie spoke up to family , neighbors, talk radio, hell I heard some talk radio today and mostly Hannity and you would think none of this was going on , he;s nothing but a coward
“’Marriage equality’ becomes ‘marriage elasticity,’ with the ultimate goal of ‘marriage extinction.’”
That about sums it up. Their real goal is to abolish of special status for the God-given and created institution of the natural family and replace it with the state.
You and I have a different definition of marriage, my friend. A marriage is not made by "honoring vows," but by the grace of God. People an "honor vows" and be any which way they please. The state has no place in defining, taxing, regulating or otherwise claiming dominion over that which is God's alone. God has made marriage. The state is powerless to destroy it. What you and the state calls marriage, I call the fallen nature of man: the claim that men have the power of God.
Your post, inarticulately though it may have been, brings up the greatest issue of overturning DOMA: family law.
Throughout American history, the state has continually claimed an increasingly powerful role in the lives of everyday citizens’ families, beginning with compulsory state education. The answer is not to enforce MORE laws ensuring MORE state control of what we hold dear, but FEWER laws.
If you are correct that the problem exists in a few states, then why not end the “marriage” business by the government? The problems will only exist in those few states. End the state’s role in the “education” (perversion) of children, and you will put an end to 99% of the absolute crap we face.
Those who live unholy and impure lives will live with the consequences of their actions. Those who live rightly will do better. While I agree holiness is better than sin, that is clearly not the State’s proper role.
So I agree with you. It is a minority that want to pervert children and society. Let that minority sit in their own little communities and get the state out of the business of forcing it on everyone else: get the government OUT of our families and the Holy Mysteries/Sacraments of our churches. Get the government OUT of education.
Just keep it the way it is, marriage is bewteen one man and one woman though common sense doesn;t seem to be much around lately and that;s why we have idiots, perverts and nutjobs wanting all sorts of marriage regardless of how it affects the kids.
Also the Govt out of it slogan.
There are blood test, divorce, marriage certificate, who get the kids.
Keep mariage as it is, my wife and I got maried , not in a religious setting not off a Rev because of religion differences.
Yes the Govt married us.
Define the “real world.”
I refuse to be part of that, and join communities that are not part of that. If your town has more than 3,000 people and is within 500 miles of a city with more than 250,000, move.
Marriage means one man and one woman, according to Natural Law which is created by God, by biology (also created by God) and is part and parcel of Natural Law.
I am not interested, for the discussion of preventing sodomy/two men/two women/fake “marriage” to get into details of religious meanings of marriage. That narrows support.
Simple nature, biology, and every religion in the world says “man+woman=marriage”.
You want to narrow support, that’s your choice. I want to widen support. The government has no freaking right to change the eternal and natural meaning of marriage to cater to mentally ill sex perverts.
Was thinking about what you said last night and it;s not a bad idea.
I remember years ago that liberal tarians wanted to take a state over and they said all move to NH.
Maybe if every conservative got the hell out of the north east and right on the coast of the west coast then certain red states would an influx of millions moving to their state, would see socialist states lose voters and tax money.
