Thoughts that Keep Me Awake Nights

"Same Sex Marriage

Most everyone who knows me, knows that as a Libertarian, I personally do not believe that the State should be involved in marriage at all. 1. Marriage is considered a sacrament in the Church, and the Government has no business handing out sacraments. 2. It is one of the many ways the Government is involved entirely too deeply in our personal lives. Marriage should be left to churches. If a contract is needed for property rights, etc. Then that should be a legal contract and entered into via the courts as any contract would be, but should not be "marriage".

Redefining words and equal protection under the law. Marriage has always been defined as a Union between a Husband and a Wife. Looking up the relative definitions of Husband and wife, you find that Husband is notably male, and wife is notably female. So marriage is between a man and a woman. In order to have "Same sex marriage" you must redefine the word itself, or part of the equation of husband/wife is missing, or you must redefine all three words, marriage, husband, wife. Having said that, when it is said that Gays are denied the right to marriage and this violates the equal protection clause, this is flatly not true, because of the DEFINITION of the words. They are free to marry a person of the opposite sex, the same as anyone else. THEY choose not to abide by the LETTER of the law by trying to redefine words contained within to suit themselves. Oh, that we could just do that with all our laws, then nothing would be illegal, because then we could just exclaim that my definition for that word is not the same as the writer of the law, and voila! Get out of jail free card! Imagine for a moment that for some reason it is deemed a RIGHT that you are given a can of peas at birth. If you ask for a can of corn instead, you are denied it, of course, because a can of peas is the only thing you were guaranteed. You cannot claim then that it violates the equal protection clause because you did not get your can of corn.
