‘A sad step toward marital anarchy’
This is what we warned state legislators and Hoosiers to expect. The advocates of same-sex marriage have been trying to use activist judges, willing to legislate from the bench, to force a new public policy on marriage upon all of Indiana. At this point in time, they have succeeded.
Regardless of what any judge says, marriage is about uniting men and women together for the best interests of children and society. Men and women are uniquely and individually important. They are not interchangeable or discardable. Whatever two men may be, they are not a mom and a dad.
These same activists ultimately want to force their view of marriage upon every school, church, institution, business and individual in Indiana. It will pit freedom of conscience, speech and religious liberty against the homosexual agenda.
However, this issue is far from over. It will make its way up to the Supreme Court, which will have to determine if the will of the people and the role of their elected representatives really matter and the centuries of truth about marriage as a gendered institution can suddenly be ignored.
There is also the question of the further devaluing of marriage. What about three men? What about a man and two women? If this is about the “rights” of the LGBTQ activists, what does the “B” mean? It means a bisexual man should be able to demand to have his desires affirmed by marrying another man and another woman. Instantly polygamy and bigamy boundaries are gone, and little of marriage as we’ve known it is left. Over time, children and society will suffer as marriage loses its purpose and its meaning.
This matter is not settled, but it is a sad step toward moral and marital anarchy as the desires of a few activists now trump biological truth and the established needs of children and society.
