The idea of "Traditional Marriage" is a myth. At least the Traditional Marriage that people like Maggie Gallagher like to talk about has only come about since about 1968. So all the "hoopla" about this huge tradition, is really only slightly over 40 years old.
Did you know that a wife was not allowed to say her husband raped her? Even if they had been involved in "domestic disputes", even if the husband had put her in the hospital because he beat her, even if there was a restraining order against the husband, the wife could not say that her husband raped her?
You've come a long way, Congress. Now how about giving ALL Americans the right of "Traditional Marriage"
1. Adam and Eve
2. Naomi and Ruth
3. David and Jonathan
4. Esther given by her Uncle in Marriage to the King
5. King Solomon and his 1000 women
6. St. Peter and his wife (yes, that is right the Apostle Peter The Catholic Churches first Pope) was married. Jesus healed Peter's Mother-in-law.
7. The Centurion and his male "Servant"
From where does the tradition of Marriage originate then? Well I "Googled" it several times and all I can come up with is that possibly it originated with the Greeks...the Greeks? However, when I took the word "traditional" out of the search, I was able to come up with a lot more results.
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
Genesis 1: 27
I don't dispute that God created male and female. I just dispute that fact that people are taking so much of the Scripture out of context for their own agendas.
Do your own real research. Come to your own conclusions.
But don't use terms like "TRADITIONAL" when you don't understand what you are honestly saying.
