You say you're in support of traditional marriage "jes lek tha bible says!" yet do you really know what you are saying? Have you even read the bible? And I mean every word in detail? Sure you can quote John 3:16 but can you quote Deuteronomy 22:28-29? It states
"If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days."
So you agree with a man raping a woman and then she having to marry him? You know that too was tradition. Making it a traditional marriage at one point. It's also promoted by the bible. What about Deuteronomy 21:10-14?
“When you go out to war against your enemies, and the Lord your God gives them into your hand and you take them captive, and you see among the captives a beautiful woman, and you desire to take her to be your wife, and you bring her home to your house, she shall shave her head and pare her nails. And she shall take off the clothes in which she was captured and shall remain in your house and lament her father and her mother a full month. After that you may go in to her and be her husband, and she shall be your wife. But if you no longer delight in her, you shall let her go where she wants. But you shall not sell her for money, nor shall you treat her as a slave, since you have humiliated her."
Virgin female war prisoners taken as wives. Also a traditional marriage at one point. What if a woman's husband died and she was to marry his brother? Isn't that also wrong? Well guess what It was tradition, How about a male and female slave. If you owned slaves -not even going to go there- you could order a male and female to be married and the woman had to submit sexually to their new husbands.
If you say you're in favor of the "nuclear family" type marriage like stated in Genesis 2:24 are you okay with only marrying someone of your own faith? Wives being property of the husband? And if a woman couldn't prove her virginity on the wedding night she would be stoned to death? This is nonsense my friend. This is not to mention the fact that most times the marriage was arranged and was not based on love.
Do you see your argument failing? A traditional marriage based on the bible doesn't equal an episode of Leave It Beavis. It never has and never will. Today and in the future marriages will be for those in love. Whither I marry a woman or I marry the man I'm with right now it will not affect your life or your marriages. I promise you that. If yours is so fragile how are you even still married? This puzzles me really. You want religious freedom we all do! Yet you want your religious views imposed on all Americans. It seems to me you're not honoring Matthew 7:12 the golden rule. Treat others as you would like to be treated. How would you react if someone told you your love for your partner wasn't genuine for some reason in their holy text? And what if the government agreed? And would not allow you to be with the person you can't imagine being without? If you think being married means nothing when it comes to rights you're very very wrong. The right to be in the hospital room while your husband or wife is ill is more than just a piece of signed paper. It's telling them you love them before a major surgery that they might not make it out of. If you can not understand that you haven't a heart. I wish one day you see the truth in your lies. Because to deny someone that right in a so called free country is the worst case of false advertisement I have ever witnessed.
