Get over it.

Dear fundagelical Christians,

Why not just accept that the law now accords same sex couples the same right it accords opposite sex couples to enter a relationship with a particular set of legal consequences. You are still free to believe that these are not "real" marriages in the eyes of God, just as you are free to believe that Mormons, Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Unitarians are not "real" Christians in the eyes of God. You just don't get to control how the rest of us use the language.

  1. In the 1970s, the Supreme Court ruled that homosexuals had no standing for insisting that "marriage" be redefined to their benefit. Homosexuals did not accept that ruling and continued pushing their agenda until they achieved their current success with the help of morally bankrupt gov't officials and jurists, both of whom cared little for the will of the people or constitutional principles.

    Why then, should those of us who accept and adhere to definitions without regard to personal convenience do any differently? If you're willing to accept that which is untrue, unhealthy and immoral...that's your business. I don't see where you get to demand that the rest of us do so as well.
