Fundamentalist Priority

November 2, 2008 | By | 3 Replies More

It is important, in this day and age of a collapsing economy, two ongoing wars, government-sponsored torture and an energy crisis of unprecidented proportions, to focus on what is really important.  For these “Christians,” one of those high priorities is to keep gays from getting married.

    As with 2000 and 2004, the secret to Republican success is to bring out those who normally care not a fig about public politics, but are eager to pass laws restricting pubic behavior in private.

    I'll be doing some phone-banking later today for no on 8. Keep your fingers crossed!

    I continue to wonder what Christian fundies mean when they refer to the "sanctity of marriage." In a country where Britney Spears can run to Vegas for a 55 hour "marriage" to Jason Alexendar, exactly what "sanctity" remains in marriage? In a country where more than half of all marriages end in divorce (and the number is even higher for self-described "Christians"), exactly what "sanctity" remains in marriage? In a country where an 89-year-old billionaire can marry a surgically-enhanced 26iyear-old stripper (Anna Nicole Smith), exactly what "sanctity" remains in marriage? In a country where pregnant teenagers rush to get married before their babies arrive (Are you listening, Bristol Palin?), exactly what "sanctity" remains in marriage?

    The truth is that marriage in America is devoid of "sanctity." Marriage is a convenience…a symbol…even (thanks to Britney) weekend entertainment. It is the latter which, for me, proves beyond any doubt that homosexuals can do no more harm to the "sanctity" of marriage than heterosexuals have already done. When heterosexuals can get married and divorced on a whim, whenever the mood strikes them, whenever they are drunk, stoned, hung-over, suicidal, facing an unplanned pregnancy…or even incarcerated for murdering their previous spouse…it defies reason to argue that homosexuals would somehow ruin it. Christians opposed to "gay marriage" are just bigots. Period, end of story.
