Fun With Domestic Partners! (Or... "Gay" Marriage, let there be Chaos!)
In our new open liberal "we accept everybody” society, please explain something to me... Why do you have to have sex to be married or Domestic Partners? Some married couples don't have sex, like the couple on TV the other night (the guy weighed 700lbs, but that's another blog) ...and if the sex (like "Gay" marriage) of the partners is no longer an issue, why should such a "relationship" be limited to two people? Since the male/female aspect is now irrelevant, isn't it unfair that these "unions" be limited to only two people? (are we being “twoist” …is it time to stamp out the prejudice of "duoism"!). If we are going to rid ourselves of the old, outdated and traditional “chains” of male/female marriage, we are going to have to throw it all out and start over! But start where? All bets are off as any attempt to limit the definition is arbitrary and begs a challenge. Think what this will do for the polygamists, “fundamentalist” Mormon sects in the west will demand recognition for sure. Could this soon dissolve into chaos?
I will sue so my 5-piece dance band or my 25 member fraternity can declare ourselves "domestic partners" (we love each other)...and gain all the benefits of (what was once) holy matrimony? We will demand that all of us be covered under ONE family health insurance program.
Also, what if my sister is a widow and I'm divorced (so there is NO sexual connection in our relationship), why should we be prevented from pooling our families and getting ALL the benefits of marriage, if we declare ourselves "Domestic Partners"? Think about Aunt Bea and Uncle Charlie, they were vital "domestic partners" to their households (I am assuming there was no sex). In the headlong rush to destroy our Judeo-Christian roots advocates of "Gay" marriage and the like are opening a MAJOR can of worms (No pun intended). They say "we just want to do what’s fair”, but notice when you try to please everybody, you usually just screw it up for everybody.
I suspect the latter.
Hmmmmm??? Mr. JC, what "morals" should be enforced by the state (and what should be the source of these morals?) If the church can be corrupted by a position on the war… can it also be corrupted by a position on “gay marriage” or any other issue (slavery, civil rights, etc).
