The U.S. Supreme Court will be “legislating” when hearing same-sex marriage cases this week. There is nothing in the Constitution permitting same-sex marriage.
Marriage, since time immemorial, has always been defined, practiced and recognized as the union of one man and one woman – in every nation, society and religion. Same-sex relationships are quite different from “traditional marriage” – physically, morally, legally, spiritually and in their essential ability to procreate our species.
No single group has a legal, moral or ethical right to appropriate another’s definition of its behavior and then apply that definition to its own different behavior or status.
When a president redefines taxes as “investments,” he is wrongly conning the ignorant for his political purposes. Square-dancers who redefine what they are doing as a “waltz” would be usurping the universal popularity of the highly acclaimed, elegant classic round dance.
The same-ex minority of our society is now trying to appropriate the acceptance, good will and prestige of the highly respected and venerable marriage majority – rather than distinctly defining and advancing their own diverse, unique sexual behavior and status.
We should universally define the same-sex relationships accurately and distinctively, but not as “marriage.” The Supreme Court should dismiss, with prejudice, the current same-sex relationship cases. If the Supreme Court approves same sex “marriages,” it will not be adjudicating, but wrongly legislating, and misappropriating to itself our state’s legislators’ particular, diverse constitutional function.
