"'Some people say, 'You gays are trying to redefine
marriage,' but the definition of marriage has already changed," said
Treadway, a 20-year-old student originally from Los Angeles. "Now it's
between two people who love each other.'"If the definition
of marriage has already changed, and the gays were not the ones who caused it to
change, who was it that changed it? It certainly wasn't me!It's as if he is claiming that because marriage has already been
redefined it is therefore justifiable to redefine marriage. This claim is
completely nonsensical. It also amounts to proof positive that the
gay agenda is indeed about trying to force a redefinition of marriage upon the
world, and not really about a desire for "equal rights." Fortunately, no
matter how many times they try to tell me what marriage really is, I will not be
Hooky,Through most of history, marriage was a trade between the
bride's father and the groom. The groom would pay for the bride and the
father (who owned his daughter) would give her to her new husband. Sometimes
marriage was used to unite countries. Sometimes used to procure property and
land. Most of the time, the husband would have more than one wife. Ancient Rome and China have actually had gay marriages. Your
notion of romantic marriage is a pretty new invention. Yes, the word marriage
has been redefined many times.Take a moment and read about the
history of marriage. You might be surprised.
Another civilized country, whom we'll be joining soon.@Hooky.
The LDS church changed the definition twice before the turn of the century, and
still believes in plural MARRIAGE in the after life.The United
States changed the definition when it rightfully FORCED states to recognize
"Interracial marriage."If it isn't about Equal Rights,
then what exactly is the "Gay Agenda's" secret and obviously
Interesting that governments try to legitimize relationships that God will not,
according to the Bible (Romans 1:24-27).It's as if mankind perceives
itself as being wiser than God.As such, it's little wonder
that, according to the Bible, "The wisdom of man is foolishness unto
"Fortunately, no matter how many times they try to tell me what marriage
really is, I will not be swayed."Good for you, Hooky. The gay
rights activists don't understand that the definition of marriage between
one man and one woman has been around since the earth began!Or, at least
since 1896. But, whatever!
"It's as if mankind perceives itself as being wiser than God."An objective examination of the Bible (as well as other sacred
scriptures), along with a comparison against humankind's best secular
ethics and moral philosophy, would confirm that mankind is much wiser, kinder,
more humane and merciful, and overall more magnanimous than the Christian god
ever was or will be.
@disport So which is more foolish to pass laws on science and reason or
the modern interpretation of ancient myths?
Both of my grandparents were children of Polygamous marriages. Thank goodness
that was the definition of "traditional marriage", or many of us would
not be here. Let's not forget our own history.
I called to wish a cousin in Manchester happy birthday this evening. I got him
on his mobile; he was at the pub, unaware that by then same sex marriages had
occurred. Apparently, the world he lives in actually didn't change that
much, and it certainly wasn't a big deal there.
