Are we really surprised? I read online where someone called it a “Day of Shame” when the California Courts ruled a law unconstitutional that defined marriage as between a man and a woman. I’m not sure California has any shame left.
Remember the case a few years ago (I’m thinking ’02, maybe ’03) regarding the phrase “under God” in the Pledge? The father in that case, offended his daughter had to say that in school, had first gone to court in Florida. After losing there, he decided he had the best chances in California. This guy moved his family across the country so he could be offended by the pledge in California, and sue there. And he was right; a judge there sided with him, on the basis of First Ammendment rights, and separation of church and state. The whole country knows California is way left, and I don’t mean geographically.
San Fransico has been a Mecca of gay and lesbians since the 1960’s. “If you’re going to California, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair… You’re gonna’ meet some gentle people there.” There is no single day in California more shameful than any other day.
I’ve been hapily married for the past ten years. My wife and I are unusual in the fact that we both grew up in happy, unbroken homes. I believe in holy matrimony, as described by God in the Bible. We live in a free country; if you want to have homosexual intercourse, you’re well within your rights to do so. But don’t call it marriage. That cheapens and degrades the marrital relationship I have with my wife. Marriage is the first institution created by God. Do what you wish with your gay lovers, but leave “marriage” to those of us who understand and appreciate it.
