Yesterday I wrote about the hypocrisy of gay-“marriage” advocates. Now I’ll address the fantasy world they live in.
Continuing the conversation I was having with the young bisexual female who was a self-described political moderate, she went on to say that one reason she wants to get married is for the tradition of it. So I said,
“You know, I’m glad you’re happy in your relationship. People can love whomever they want. But why try to take something away from religious people? Why can’t you call it something else? By definition, it is something else, not marriage. You can say you’re married all you want, but if two gay people get “married,” they’re still not married. Call it something else, like unified, or enjoined, you know? There is no “tradition” in two gay people claiming to be married. It is the precise opposite: it is the destruction of a tradition.”
In her next message, she asked,
“Can’t I call it marriage? It is just a word, right? A made-up English word like all the others. So if I want it to be called marriage, why stop me? People are the ones who put meanings behind words. So if I want to call it a marriage, then I should be allowed to.”
Language is constantly changing, yes. My smartphone is technically a computer? But in 100 years, “computer” may be a defunct term considered technically inaccurate. In 100 years, a newly invented term may be applied to my then-antique smartphone, a word like, say, “procepidor.” “Here is an antique from one hundred years ago, a Galaxy S III. The procepidor inside it is powered by Android,” and so on. The language will have evolved, so while “computer” will no longer be used, my antique smartphone will still be, in the traditional sense, a computer.
Language may evolve to a degree, but religion does not, or at least Christianity does not. A cross will always mean to a Christian what it has always meant. Marriage will always be one man and one woman. Simply saying otherwise does not make it so.
“If I want to call it a marriage then I should be allowed to”? How about this: if I rape a child and I want to call it love-making, should I be allowed to? If I want to call her an adult, even though she’s six years old, should I be allowed to? Say I have a penis but I wish I had a vagina, so I call myself a woman. When I die and an autopsy is performed, won’t the medical report say I’m a male? By definition, I would be a male, no matter what I claimed in life.
No, you cannot assert that gay “marriage” is actually marriage. That’s called living in a fantasy.
