Who appointed anyone to judge another?Posted Tuesday, December 13, 2011, at 5:35 AM
This blog deals politically, morally and legally with the subject of same sex unions. First a few points to ponder. Anytime the governments permission is required to enter into any type of union, or dissolve it, it becomes a civil contract. I believe this to be a factual statement. I also believe that the only requirement government is allowed to enforce when it comes to civil contracts between 2 people is that they both be of legal age to enter into a civil contract and that there is no coercion involved. In other words, consenting adults. This is a very important point to remember, consenting adults. When one of the parties is deemed to young or have the mental capacity to enter a civil contract, it is forbidden by the state. I hope everyone recognizes the extensive use of the them civil as opposed to religious. Marriage falls into the category of a civil contract, as it requires the consent of a civil court to dissolve said union, it can not be dissolved solely by a member of any clergy. The whole term Marriage belongs in a place of worship and not in civil law. If I've ruffled feathers so far, there's more. Discriminating who can enter a civil contract based on their sex is a bigoted as racial discrimination. I dare anyone to present any factual studies to support such discrimination. So to all of you, I propose this as a solution, those who wish to be joined in a union can go to a judge, county clerk or other recognized lay person and have your contract ratified. Those who wish to have a traditional "Marriage" may go to your local clergy person and have your contract ratified, as long as the contracts are equal in rights. This blog I hope will cause people to think with their mind, rather than emotion.
