In light of recent discussion on other forums of which I am a member, (as well as: http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2006/06/print/20060603.html) I would like to pose a challenge:
The Challenge: Adequately explain how constitutionally allowing gay marriages threatens heterosexual marriages.
Sub-Challenge1: Conversely, explain how constitutionally -banning- gay marriages works to strengthen heterosexual marriages.
Sub-Challenge2: Break your response into separate political and theological arguments.
Any response must be coherent, logical, and not based solely on Biblical law taken from Leviticus.
The best, rock-solid explanation gets the prize.
The Reward: The New Kids on the Block “Hangin’ Tough” CD, slightly used… a “Superior Coaches” keychain… plus whatever pocket change I may have on me, which I will be adding to daily until a winner is found. (Current coffers are at a whopping total of 56 cents).
What I hope to accomplish here is to simply get you thinking… and keep me thinking as well. Hopefully sometime within my lifetime I will see the masses realize that there is no threat and marriage will be legal regardless of gender.
…And don’t even get me started on this “pre-pregnant” crap which the CDC is putting forth as guidelines for all women AND health care organizations (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/05/15/AR2006051500875_pf.html). Being treated as “pre-pregnant” is offensive to any Child Free (by choice) couple.
