Marching for Marriage

Marching for Marriage

  Last week, while the Supreme Court was hearing arguments on California’s Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act, there was a March for Marriage in Washington, D.C.   People were coming out from far and wide to stand up for the definition of marriage that has withstood for thousands of years. Anna Maria Hoffman of Counter Cultured sums up her experiences there. It’s important that we who believe marriage is a union between one man and one woman under God speak up. We can’t let the Left and the accomodationist wing of the GOP own this issue. There is opposition and we are many....

Redefining Marriage and Freedom

Redefining Marriage and Freedom

  As challenges to Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) are making their way to the Supreme Court, we are hearing more and more from people who argue for the redefinition of marriage on the basis of “freedom.”   The argument goes “if two consenting adults want to get married, who are you to say that this is wrong?” So now, they are using freedom to push the idea that marriage should be between people of the same gender. This is a radical misunderstanding of the concept of freedom. Freedom is not an end-all and be-all which means you do whatever you feel like doing without consequences or criticism. Furthermore, freedom does not mean radically redefining the most important institution in all of society (for the reason that is allows society to perpetuate itself). People who want to redefine marriage are actually undercutting any pretense of freedom. There is a fundamental misunderstanding of the entire institution of marriage. Previously, people knew marriage was not merely a...

The Other Definition of Marriage

The Other Definition of Marriage

  No, not “same sex.” The one that for the most part shall remain nameless, taboo, sponsored by the letter ‘P’, as in ‘Permanent’ … shudders.   The other day, I was minding my own business, musing about the origins of marriage in consideration of “gay marriage” when a funny thing happened. To wit – Originally, marriage was primarily for children, or because of the near-certainty of having them. A long-term relationship between a man and a woman imposed certain risks and responsibilities upon them. For a woman, an agreement to have sex was usually a life-and-death commitment. If she became pregnant then she had both herself and her children to care for. Marriage bonded them, until death, as he promised to provide for and to protect both her and their children. Similarly, men needed to be sure that any children were, in fact, legitimate heirs of their labor and fortunes. Working men would find it hard to physically care for children without a wife. Marriage bonded them, until death,...
