Not until they respect marriage as much as Elizabeth
Proudly rededicated 2014 to Ann 'n' Mel
that NO ONE--no matter how erudite--has managed to note something
as plain as the appendage on the body area of yer choice, to wit:
The essential defining quality of marriage is commitment,
not the indoor or outdoor plumbing of the committers. It's
ALL about staying together, and that's the nature and purpose of
the institution. Period.
Ain't it suspicious that no one can even remember this long
enough to comment on it?
It seems the straights have made the most tragic—and trashy—mockery
of the institution, after having exclusive privilege to it for centuries.
Their 50% flame-out rate should function as duct-tape over
their righteous mouths. Their three-out-of-four infidelity
rate should function as rivets..
say "they" even though I am one and am ashamed of us all—treat
marriage like a cranked up prom night; a too-kewl chance for the
woman to dress up as a virgin and swan around for a day with a bikini
wax and a pearl-pink pedicure that no one sees and the groom couldn't
care less about. [Why does she do this?]
So the genitally-correct couple parrots some vows that have barely
been videotaped and edited, before husband and wife are splitting
for new booty and raising a generation of kids in Franken-families
who think "commitment" is an urban legend.
Aside: No wonder kids have
to have tattoos and piercings! They look at the folks who
could throw away a wedding ring like a pantiliner, and they say,
"Hey, wimps, I'm having a ring stuck through holes
in my skin." It's a reaction to the death
of commitment—and we know who the assasins are.
An aborted marriage should be treated like an aborted college degree;
if you don't finish the thesis, you don't qualify. If
you don't finish the commitment, then you've attempted
marriage, but not filled the requirements. (I know i know,
this view is considered wildly eccentric.)
straights have behaved like marriage was from Wal-mart™, so
keep the receipt. Straights flout vows to both mates and children,
showing that most of them shouldn't have been allowed to breed in
the first place. "Off to the vet with them!"
They break their vows to their own kids—the ones
who make straight marriage the decent, god-fearing thang that it
is. Thanks to faithless straights, "family life" is now sponsored
by realtors and therapists who follow newly-fissioned Frankenfamilies like those manure-scoopers who follow horses in parades.
No, my fellow citizens—it's about the vow, stupid!
So if gays want to have a couple of millennia to do as well as we
did, how dare we huff and strut and claim that we're the only people
qualified to make kids cry by telling them that daddy's moving out
to live with Martha from Accounting.
Supple reader, give this point some consideration, if you'd be
so kind, as it's been standing backstage the whole time whilst every
other prima-pundit has had their hour upon the stage—missing
the whole point.
Clarity and perspective seem desperately needed.
