Whenever the phrase “equality” is used to make anything legal, look out, it’s not about fairness or liberty; it’s about having whatever one personally wants no matter the consequences to society and life in general.
The phrase “equality” is a very compelling argument. After all, here in the United States where liberty reigns and the Constitution upholds our natural rights to God-given liberty, we don’t want to take away anyone’s liberty.
Everything beyond our natural rights is a privilege individuals must work for—unless it is marriage. In that case, we are talking about something that has never been equal, because religions and societies are not equal.
Marriage is not listed in the Constitution, and for good reason: Marriage is a religious liberty instituted by God before governments ever existed. Government did not create marriage, government should never be allowed to dictate marriage or people will indeed lose private life. That’s why marriage is state-by-state.
But don’t think for one moment government would not like to get its expansive paws on marriage and dictate the rules of marriage and divorce.
Think about it: Do citizens apply for marriage licenses in Washington, D.C. or local town and city halls? If Americans sought D.C.’s permission to obtain marriage licenses, leaders would have the power to control how and when individuals marry, and heaven forbid, control marital life.
So, whenever Americans hear talk of “marriage equality,” look out, it’s an open door for government to finally become completely involved in private life, and when that happens, don’t think marriage affirmative action won’t be next on the list.
And therein lay the problem and questions no one’s asking both sides of the marriage argument.
What would the government do if marriage is taken from individual state’s and those rights are handed over to federal power?
There goes another Fourth Amendment liberty right down the tubes!
We must ask serious questions rather than assuming “that will never happen in America,” because too much of what we thought would “never happen here” already has and we are on the verge of all-out socialism.
Do readers really want marriage socialized and determined by the Federal Government? Could the Federal Government actually take control of marriage if given power to define marriage? If so, what are the possible repercussions?
If the Federal Government is given power over marriage, it would no longer be a state-by-state issue; a state’s right.
If the Federal Government has the power to define marriage, Washington could hold all Christian churches in contempt of the law if they refuse to perform same sex marriages.
Suppose the Federal Government were to twist Biblical scriptures “Judge not lest you be judged,” and “whoever casts the first stone,” falsely claiming scriptures demand no church can say no to same sex marriage or churches are violating scripture. Just imagine the Federal Government holding churches in contempt of the scriptures.
Never put anything past those who want to control the lives of citizens and use the Bible as a weapon against Christianity.
There goes more religious freedom.
Americans aren’t taking into account religious freedom; not having government impose its will upon our lives, which includes marriage. If we completely lose religious freedom, and we’ve lost much to the Left, Americans will in fact lose all liberty, because religious freedom is the foundation of this country.
Open the doors and let government into marriage and we wind up saying “I do” to the government.
As if we aren’t already.
Again, marriage has never been government instituted, but many determined to have rights to marry in all 50 states by-way-of federal government mandate are not considering facts: They too will lose all rights to private life if the Federal Government is allowed to define and mandate marriage.
If given power to define marriage and give it “equality,” government could have power to define and determine who gets married and when.
How does Marriage Affirmative Action sound to readers?
Suppose the Federal Government said Christians can’t be married this year because the Federal Government does not have an equal quota on all marriages Christian, Jewish, gay, Hindu, Atheist, Muslim, black, white, Asian, etc.?
What if race-card panderers, who claim America is too white, place a quota on white marriages to lesson American’s birthing more whiteness?
Never assume power-hungry, vote-grabbing politicians, those with race-card platforms, and those who hate Christians and traditionalists, would never do any of the above to Americans.
Here’s another question: If the Federal Government has control over marriage, couldn’t it have the say over who can and cannot divorce?
Just imagine the Federal Government telling abused women they cannot divorce dangerous husbands who beat them. Or denying Muslim women rights to divorce Muslim husbands threatening to behead wives, because Islam says women are second class citizens. Islam would no doubt demand Sharia Law marriage equality in America since it does in Europe. Abused women, Muslim and non-Muslim, already face difficulty when trying to free themselves from abusive situations; if government gets involved, government could say America has too much divorce, and then watch the real war on women begin.
Imagine the Federal Government not letting women divorce pedophile husbands on the grounds some claim pedophilia is a life-style choice, or, because some psychiatrists consider pedophilia a mental disorder that needs understanding and not condemnation.
Why would that be far-fetched when courts free pedophiles all the time on grounds of mental health disabilities rather than declaring them violent criminals and imprisoning them for life.
And let’s not forget divorce attorneys! They must rubbing their hands with glee over the fact they might become twice as wealthy if gay marriage is legalized in all 50 states.
Never assume this could not happen in a country where the Federal Government long-ago overreached it’s 17 Enumerated Powers into the states.
And let’s not forget polygamists; they consider their marriages religious liberty.
If Americans seriously think polygamists are not hoping the Supreme Court sides with gay marriage and the Federal Government makes marriage legal for everyone, America is wearing rose colored-glasses. Polygamists want equal rights to marriage, they’ve already jumped on the bandwagon for “marriage equality” and are demanding federal rights to marry multiple wives, including young girls forced into polygamist marriages in Colorado City, Utah.
Hey, give one group rights to marry, you must then provide full liberty and equality to all, right?
No one realizes how much power “marriage equality” holds for government to overreach state’s further and completely intrude on and order everyone’s fourth Amendment rights if marriage is government controlled.
Don’t ever think the Federal Government would never do that.
