Heterosexual Marriage is an Institution

The chances of being against gay marriage and getting published, even in a conservative magazine, are small. You can be biased against any group, but not the gays. The gays are dominating their own public relations and squashing free speech.

Bonnie says to Clyde Barrow in the movie “Bonnie and Clyde,” “Your advertising is dandy. Folks just never guess you don’t have anything to sell.” A marriage without self-produced children is a borrowed affair. Adoption by two same sex people is not even an imitation of family life.

It’s so easy to say “yes” to gay marriage and pretend you are an open-minded, non-bigoted enlightened liberal in the sky. Approval of gay marriage has even become a badge of intellect. Like it is more brainy to approve of men going to bed with each other.  Like that requires a higher IQ.  Gee, aren’t I bright.  I’m not offended by sodomy. I have no standards.  I have no instincts.  I defy my animal nature.

So I don’t like gay marriage.  Scold me.  No, disregard that; I don’t want to be harangued by some, hysterical, furious homosexual.

Fools forget that heterosexual marriage is an institution or a corporation for the benefit of society.  Love or sex is an inducement, but not a structural reason for marriage.

samesexcouplesSame sex love is irrelevant. It has nothing to do with the continuity of society.  It has no history.  It is a bowling ball running into the gutter.

Maybe we should forbid all marriage so that gays can no longer shout about their denial of gay marriage.  We will forbid all marriage except for procreation.

Only marriage for reproduction will be legal.  Oh maybe we’ll make an exception for heterosexual marriage without children because it has an endless tradition and it is for the majority.

Adoption will be possible, but only for heterosexuals, as the statistics for viability in same sex marriages is not yet forthcoming and seems to be trending towards the negative.

Gay marriage is the institutionalization of same sex love as if love were essential to society. But love, while wonderful in whatever sex, has nothing to do with the continuance of the species or its heterosexual tradition.

Same sex marriage doesn’t even have the valued tradition of heterosexual marriage. It has no validity.  It is the fantasy of atypical oddities who want to sanctify the unsanctifiable when there is no necessity for their incorporation.
