Alternative Realities

Yesterday we talked about people inventing their own realities because they can’t reconcile actual reality with their cockamamie religious beliefs.

It appears that we have to go a little further down the rabbit hole, friends. I’ll try and back us out soon. But I can’t pass this up:

Australian Nick Jensen says that if same-sex marriage is introduced, he and his wife will divorce.

Writing in the Canberra City News, Mr Jensen says he will continue to live with his wife, Sarah, and their children – and they will still consider themselves married. But they will no longer be legally married.

“If our federal parliament votes to change the timeless and organic definition of marriage later on this year, it will have moved against the fundamental and foundational building block of Australian society and, indeed, human culture everywhere.

“Indeed, it raises a red flag when a government decides it is not content only having sovereignty over land, taxes and the military — but ‘words’ themselves.

“This is why we are willing to divorce. By changing the definition of marriage, ‘marriage’ will, in years to come, have an altogether different sense and purpose.”

This type of behavior has a name. It’s right here…tip of my tongue, ah yes:

nose

By all means though, go ahead and hobble your own marriage to protest someone else’s. The Lord loves the righteous, but does he love the self-righteous as well?

The reason, however, is that, as Christians, we believe marriage is not a human invention.

Our view is that marriage is a fundamental order of creation. Part of God’s intimate story for human history. Marriage is the union of a man and a woman before a community in the sight of God. And the marriage of any couple is important to God regardless of whether that couple recognises God’s involvement or authority in it.

Nope, sorry, it is totally a human invention, one that popped up in multiple places predating or in concurrence with Judaism. But for these dolts, the Bible is their history book. If it didn’t happen to the goddamned Jews, it apparently didn’t happen at all.

Gay marriage is on track to be the most significant culture bomb since integration. There are a host of people ready to die on this battlefield. Get ready. The time is nigh, and when the detonation occurs (which I believe it will) I suspect there will be much gnashing of teeth and garment-rending similar to this.

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
