Is gay marriage really polically correct in our permissive society?
Thomas Sowell's recent article, Gay 'marriage', illustrates the absurdity that same-sex proponents will go to legalize an 'action' when trying to redefine marriage. For centuries marriage has been defined as a union between one man and one woman. But today, in some states same-sex marriage is considered political correct.
The "equal protection of the laws" provided by the Constitution of the United States applies to people, not actions. Laws exist precisely in order to discriminate between different kinds of actions.
When the law permits automobiles to drive on highways but forbids bicycles from doing the same, that is not discrimination against people. A cyclist who gets off his bicycle and gets into a car can drive on the highway just like anyone else.
In a free society, vast numbers of things are neither forbidden nor facilitated. They are considered to be none of the law's business. (TownHall.com)
Mr Sowell continues with the point why same-sex unions is becoming unfavorable in many states, such as Massachusetts, the first state to legalize same-sex marriages. That law will de addressed in Novembers election as the majority of voters in Massachusetts want the law repealed.
Homosexuals were on their strongest ground when they said that the law had no business interfering with relations between consenting adults. Now they want the law to put a seal of approval on their behavior. But no one is entitled to anyone else's approval. . .
. . . In other words, marriage imposes legal restrictions, taking away rights that individuals might otherwise have. Yet "gay marriage" advocates depict marriage as an expansion of rights to which they are entitled.
They argue against a "ban on gay marriage" but marriage has for centuries meant a union of a man and a woman. There is no gay marriage to ban. (TownHall.com)
Read the rest of the article, and see the self-evident truth that argues against same-sex unions. It is no wonder why many sates are reversing their stance on same-sex unions or establishing laws defining marriage as a union between one man and one women only, with no exceptions.
