Let’s define marriage as between 2 people
Some people want to amend our state constitution so it will officially define what marriage is. This isn’t necessary. God has already defined marriage. The government must take the position of what it will allow in the way of the kinds of marriages that will come to it for recognition and providing of rights. Any kind of constitutional amendment concerning marriage that excludes certain people most certainly would be challenged as discriminatory and unconstitutional, and the courts would be petitioned to declare it as such.
In order to avoid stepping on God’s toes and to keep him from being legislated onto people, an amendment could be made to describe marriage as being between two people. This would keep us from forcing God onto people, would keep in place the right to choose and provide the right of marriage to everyone. What about people who might want to marry more than one spouse at a time? And what about those who aren’t sure what they want to do because they are confused about their sexual identity? These people will all want the same rights they see others have, and they will want it called unconstitutional discrimination if they are not afforded them.
The constitution cannot “constitute” and the government cannot govern without the consent of the people. Government must have the people’s approval to govern, and the people must give government permission to govern in certain ways. The people must approve whether they will have the precepts mentioned in the previous paragraph to be part of the way they will be governed. If they do not want to be governed in a way that includes such principles, they must not empower the government with the means and authorization to do so. These ideas must be balloted to the people, and if the majority does not consent, then the principles cannot go into the constitution. There can be no discrimination because there can be no law written. And there can be no law because the constitution will not be empowered to allow it — not having received permission from the people to do so — with the people choosing not to be governed the way the principles would direct.
