The hyper-religious right is in its last throes over gay marriage. The usual suspects have taken out a full page ad in the Washington Post that states, in part:
“We will not honor any decision by the Supreme Court which will force us to violate a clear biblical understanding of marriage as solely the union of one man and one woman.”.
We affirm that Marriage, as existing solely between one man and one woman, precedes civil government. Though affirmed, fulfilled, and elevated by faith, the truth that marriage can exist only between one man and one woman is not based solely on religion but on the Natural Law, written on the human heart.
Oooh, you won’t “honor” it. So what. Is that a threat? What the hell does that mean? I mean, we already knew you wouldn’t respect gay love so this is kind of a nothingburger. Please be more specific as to what else you are going to do besides be an asshole about this. And what is the “natural law”? I guess that’s their weird way of saying the poo chute is not for fucking. Research suggests otherwise. I’d like to know As for the biblical understanding of marriage, I must defer to America’s Best Christian, because she already did the heavy lifting:
This epitomizes the problem. You have people who live every bit of their pathetic little lives by some Iron Age book they clearly haven’t read. And they won’t be satisfied until everyone thinks like they do. Why? Because that’s in their Bible too, to witness for Jesus-who incidentally never said a word about gays or marriage.
