Of all the arguments used by the opponents of same-sex marriage, I think my favorite is the “God defined marriage, so there are no same-sex marriages no matter what the court says” argument. Matt Walsh makes that very argument at Glenn Beck’s site in the wake of Friday’s ruling.
“Gay Marriage Still Doesn’t Exist, No Matter What the Supreme Court Says,” the headline screams.
But whatever the Supreme Court says, the Truth remains the same: There is no right to gay marriage. There is no gay marriage. It’s not real. It’s not possible.
It’s make-believe. It means nothing.
You might say it doesn’t matter now because the Supreme Beings have spoken, but I happen to think that Truth always matters. Despite what any judge says; despite the prevailing opinion; despite the surveys and polls and consensuses; the Truth still matters. If it doesn’t, then nothing matters and life is pointless. Your existence has no meaning if the Truth is irrelevant. There is no reason for you to be on this planet if there is no Truth worth fighting for.
And the Truth is that, due to the fundamental nature of human rights, marriage, and homosexuality, a union between two homosexuals is not, has never been, and will never be a legitimate marriage.
Then why are you still throwing a tantrum about it? If those marriages don’t actually exist, despite the signed marriage license and official legal status and all, you’re whining about absolutely nothing. You can continue on your merry way, pretending that they don’t exist. You can just put on your God-colored glasses and all those gay couples just magically disappear. I just wish I could pretend that bigots don’t exist.
